The week that was…
After a well-deserved weekend off, the boys are preparing for another road trip to Cairns, this weekend, to take on the Northern Pride. In what will be a very important game for the boys at this time of the season, we need to be up against an improving Pride side on their home ground.
This week also sees our Club Captain Phil Dennis reach yet another milestone in his career, by playing his 250th Intrust Super Cup game. Phil is the highest capped ever Magpie in our 109 year history and I’ve said it on several occasions, I’ve witnessed some of the greats play the game and represent the Magpies over my time at the club and Phil would not be out of place in any era. He is a credit to the club, the game and most importantly himself. Always leading by example and the club once again acknowledges the great achievements of one of its favourite sons, Philly D.
Also exciting news for our Co Captain this week Dan Tamou and his wife Bianca, giving birth to their first child Iysabella. It’s been a disappointing year for Dan, with his injury keeping him out for the season. This week is certaintely a highlight for Dan and Bianca.
Don’t forget if you’re in Brissy and are looking to watch some footy over the weekend, our Colts are playing the Sunshine Coast Falcons at Logan Brothers at 4.45pm Saturday, so please get out and support the young Magpies.
Until next week…
