Where and when to watch Gympie sporting action this weekend
GYMPIE has been blessed with a huge helping of local sporting action around the region this weekend.
This afternoon will see the return of the Gympie Devils and the Gympie Cats, two refreshed and rejuvenated clubs aiming high in their rugby league and Aussie Rules seasons respectively.
Tonight the Gympie United Gladiators are in action at the One Mile Sporting Complex once again for one of the biggest dates on their calendar, a Football Federation Australia Cup tie against Brisbane travellers Westside Grovely FC.
In Rugby Union the Gympie Hammers return to Albert Park at 1pm, where their colts, reserve men's and women's sides all feature. The reserves will start their league push against Maroochydore while the other two play trials against University.
Tomorrow the Gympie Auto Sport Club continues the opening round of the Queensland Offroad Racing Championship this weekend at Sexton.
