Broncos and Cowboys already draw a crowd
FOOTY fever hit Rockhampton yesterday, as hundreds of people lined up at Stockland throughout the day to purchase their tickets for the Broncos and Cowboys NRL pre-season trial game in Rockhampton next month.
Rockhampton's Margaret Volling and her son, Matthew, were not going to miss out on the tickets they wanted, lining up from 7.45am before the tickets went on sale at 9am.
The Volling family, who were getting grandstand tickets for the Brisbane Broncos and North Queensland Cowboys game at Browne Park on February 11, will be divided come kick-off.
"We are both Broncos and Cowboys fans,'' she said.
Comets chief executive Jamie Boon reported they had sold about 1500 tickets yesterday, and the grandstand was sold out before lunch.
Ticket sales for this game continue from 9am today for general admission tickets.
"The diehard rugby league fans want to get the tickets they want,'' Boon said.
"We'll go out every year and attract the quality NRL clubs, no matter what teams they bring, and give that to the Central Queensland public.''
Also joining the queue was Rockhampton's Holly Millgate with her six-month-old Jack, and 20-month-old daughter, Jorga, already a young Cowboys fan after watching the Cowboys and Roosters in Townsville last year.
