Brisbane Broncos to hold fan day in Dalby
THE Brisbane Broncos will travel to Dalby next month to go head-to-head with locals in what will be the touch football game of the year.
The 2015 Arrow Energy-Brisbane Broncos Fan Day on Saturday December 12 is an opportunity for Western Downs fans to spend the morning with the team and will also include a children's clinic and family entertainment.
Arrow Energy CEO Mike Grieve said the touch football match is a new addition to the fourth annual Surat fan day.
"As part of our partnership with the Broncos, it's great we can bring the team to Dalby to meet and greet some of their biggest supporters," Mr Grieve said.
"This year will be extra special with local residents having the opportunity to play an all-star touch football game with the Broncos.
"The Broncos had a very strong season and this is an opportunity for fans to congratulate the team and have a photo with their favourite players - a perfect way to kick-off the school holidays!"
Senior player Sam Thaiday said more than 1,000 people attended the 2014 fan day and the club hope to top that this year.
"We have had a great partnership with Arrow over the last few years and working with them to get out into regional Queensland has been a big part of that," Thaiday said.
The Broncos will be led westwards by Dalby boy and the club's 2015 Most Consistent Player of the Year, Andrew McCullough.
"We have had a couple of really good fan days in the past in Dalby, so I am looking forward to getting back out there and seeing as many familiar faces as I can," McCullough said.
"Rugby league is a huge part of the community, so it is nice to be able to come back to my hometown."
As part of the fun, the Broncos will hold a football skills clinic with local junior players.
There will also be a barbecue lunch, music, NRL merchandise and giveaways, face painting and laser skirmish.
A highlight of the morning will be the "Broncos and Western Downs Local Legends" touch football game.
