Church’s men tour facilities at Red Hills
By PARKER TAMBUA
THE SP Hunters took time over the long Easter weekend to visit the Brisbane Broncos headquarters at Red Hills while the National Rugby League team were still in Sydney due to Covid-19 restrictions.
Coach Matthew Church told The National yesterday that most of his players were Broncos fans and that the visit was for them to have a look at their facilities.
“A lot of Hunters players are Broncos fans,” he said.
“So as a team experience, we decided to show the players around the Broncos’ facilities and share a meal.
“The visit was just a day away from the programme.
“It has been raining heavily and we arranged for a barbeque at Red Hills.
“Due to the Easter public holiday and the Broncos having to remain in Sydney, it was just a visit to the facility.
“It was a great experience for the boys. Most of them had never been here.
“It was good that they got to see where the Broncos were based and their facilities.”
Meanwhile, the Cutters will host the Hunters in round three of the Intrust Super Cup at BB Print Stadium in Mackay on Saturday (6pm kick-off).
The Ila Alu-captained side have recorded a loss and a win after two rounds.
They are in fifth spot behind leaders Townsville Blackhawks, North Devils, Wynumm Manly Seagulls and the Northern Pride.
The top-four teams are yet to lose a game.
Church said there were no injury concerns after two rounds.
The coach said his men were aiming for their second win of the season.
