Fan gears up with number plates

WITH the 2012 NRL season kicking off this week, Yeppoon's Clint Holloway is gearing up with Broncos number plates.

Personalised Plates Queensland (PPQ) has launched a full range of NRL team-themed number plates and is challenging all Queenslanders across the State to declare support for their favourite teams.

And with Clint being the footy fanatic that he is, girlfriend Rachel Suthers saw it as the perfect anniversary gift.

Clint, a sports teacher at Yeppoon High for eight years, said he'd been a Broncos supporter from a young age.

"It was my grandad that was a big Broncos fan and we would go down to watch games at Lang Park," he recalled.

Clint said he hoped to see the Broncos make the grand final but his sister and dad disagreed.

"We've got a bit of a family feud going on, my dad goes for Cowboys and my sister is a Titans fan so it can get a bit rowdy when the game is on," the 28-year-old said.

To monitor the inter-state rivalry, PPQ has also launched the NRL Plate Leaderboard via its Facebook page to track (daily) which teams have the most passionate fanbase in arguably the most parochial state of all.

St George is leading the way with the mighty Broncos a close second, which poses the question - can the interstate contingents give the passionate Queenslanders a real run for their money?
