NRL Grand Final trophy visit to Rockhampton date is set

THE NRL Grand Final trophy is set to visit Rockhampton later this month, but there is a catch.

The Bulletin has confirmed that none of the North Queensland Cowboys players will be visiting the Beef Capital with the trophy. Just the Cowboys CEO Greg Tonner.

About a dozen of the team's players visited Mackay with thousands of fans lining the street for a parade for their heroes: A heroes' welcome as thousands turn out for Cowboys

The Bulletin is waiting to hear from the Premiership club about more details about the visit on November 29.

Would you attend a parade/ special event to see the trophy if no players are with it?
