The mighty Broncos are coming to Bundy
LEAGUE: Queensland's biggest rugby league club is coming back to Bundaberg but this time they won't be anywhere near a football field.
The Broncos will return to Bundaberg for the first time since last year's trial to host a dinner at the Brothers Sports Club as part of their Broncos On the Road tour later this month.
It is the first time a dinner has been held like this in Bundaberg.
On the night there will be three special guests with former Broncos players Corey Parker, Lote Tuqiri and Jack Reed coming to the city.
Playing over 600 games between them for three premiership titles the trio on the night will talk about their careers and also provide an insight in the club's chances of success this year.
Tickets for the event are $115 per person or $1100 for a group of 10 with a three course dinner set to be held during the night.
Part of the proceeds on the night will also go to the Bundaberg Junior Rugby League club with guests also taking home a Broncos membership.
President of the BJRL Wayne Bender said those funds would help the association make costs less for junior players.
"The money will hopefully let us purchase 47th Battalion jerseys for the juniors to play,” he said.
"We want the funds to make it cheap for children to play and make it better for parents as well.”
At the moment though the league is frustrated by not being able to play.
For the past two weekends they have been cancelled by heavy rainfall in the region.
They are hopeful of starting on April 22 after the school holidays.
"We are hoping for good growth in numbers this year,” Bender said.
"There are different rules for under-7 and under-8 juniors this year so we hope that is a hit.”
