Brothers in arms

ALMOST 5000 members of Rockhampton Brothers Leagues Club will vote on Tuesday on the proposed takeover by the CQ NRL bid team.

And they are being urged to vote in favour by Denis White, a member for nearly 30 years who managed the club for eight years during the 1990s.

Mr White declared his support for the change of ownership yesterday with a ringing endorsement of the proposal. “It’s a win-win for both parties and I can only see many positives,” he said.

“Had we kept going the way we were, there were no guarantees the club would even survive in what is a very competitive market. By joining forces with the CQ NRL bid team, we secure the club’s future and, at the same time, play a major hand in helping set up a CQ-based NRL side.”

The club’s fate will be decided at a meeting at the premises at 6pm.
