State of Origin decider on the big screen

AFTER the screening of game two was washed out at Jack Stokes Oval last month the Gympie Junior Rugby League Club will try again next Wednesday night.

The club will screen the State of Origin decider, with all the fun starting at 6pm.

The last game will be one to watch as Queensland and New South Wales go head to head.

League supporters will not have to worry about not being able to see the game.

The large screen, supplied by the Gympie Regional Council, will provide the full cinema experience.

Gympie region Maroon and Blue supporters, wearing their respective colours, are invited to watch the game.

Gympie Rugby League Club vice-president Michael Torrens said the State of Origin games were the three biggest nights of the year for football fans.

Although people may have other plans, guests can come and go as they please at any time during the night to the free event.

There will be plenty of activities for the family before and during the game.

Youngsters will be treated to face-painting, bubble soccer, inflatable rides as well as the usual football food and drink including a licensed area.

Torrens said the club was hoping to get a good crowd as the event should appeal to a lot of people.
