LEAGUE LEG­ENDS COM­ING TO TOWN

Any­thing goes as Aussie league leg­ends bring their show

Whitsunday Times - - FRONT PAGE -

NEW South Wales may have lost an­other State of Ori­gin se­ries but that doesn’t mean the Whit­sun­days can’t wel­come a cou­ple of Blues leg­ends to town.

The Fletch and Hindy Show will hit Air­lie Beach on Satur­day for a night of ques­tions, sto­ries and a whole bunch of laughs.

Nathan Hind­marsh and Bryan Fletcher are both for­mer Aus­tralian rugby league rep­re­sen­ta­tives and will open up on all things footy in an ef­fort to sup­port grass­roots foot­ball and in this case, the Whit­sun­day Brah­mans and their ju­nior club.

Hind­marsh is an Eels leg­end of more than 300 games and said au­di­ences should ex­pect any­thing on the night.

“We have a chat; ob­vi­ously we take ques­tions from the au­di­ence. It’s al­ways fun. You never know what you’re go­ing to get,” he said.

“Some­times we get ques­tions on a se­ri­ous line but mostly we en­joy a laugh. It’s very ca­sual. “Be pre­pared for any­thing.” Whit­sun­day Brah­mans spokesper­son Paul Maxwell said the club ex­pected a big turnout to the event.

“We are an­tic­i­pat­ing a full house,” he said.

“For any­one who has watched the Matty Johns Footy Show on Mon­day nights, they’d know how funny these two blokes are.”

Maxwell said it was an im­por­tant event in sup­port­ing the Brah­mans.

“The night is part of our on­go­ing fundrais­ing to help main­tain the Whit­sun­day Brah­mans as the num­ber one rugby league club in the Mackay and dis­trict rugby league comp,” he said.

The night is an in­for­mal evening with the boys, with sto­ries and in­ter­ac­tions be­tween them and the au­di­ence.

It will be the first time they’ve brought their show to the Whit­sun­days and tick­ets are sell­ing fast. Any­one in­ter­ested in at­tend­ing the event is urged to get tick­ets now to avoid miss­ing out.

There will be a li­censed bar and fin­ger food in­cluded in the ticket price.
