Capras on attack in Gladstone as Magpies swoop in

AFTER a 2000-plus strong crowd the last time they were in town, the CQ Capras will be hoping to have a similarly boisterous crowd Saturday night, when they take on Souths Logan Magpies at Marley Brown Oval.

With People Resourcing again fronting up the cash to help bring the region's top league team to Gladstone, it was hoped fans would flock down to see the Capras, with a raft of local lads set to run out.

QRL Gladstone Operations Manager Casey Bromilow said there was even the chance for locals to see a number of full-time NRL contracted players in action, with Souths naming players from the Canberra Raiders.

"Ideally that'd be fantastic if the community got out to support the Capras, with Tannum and Calliope playing the lead-up games too," he said.

"I had a look at the team sheet and there's a couple of Canberra Raiders in the Souths squad and it's a chance for locals to see a few full-time NRL guys."

With a number of Gladstone-based players, including skipper Gavin Hiscox due to tackle the fellow lowly-placed Magpies, the chance for a win in front of a home crowd should entice footy fans down on Saturday night.

Mr Bromilow thanked the team at People Resourcing for once again helping bring the Intrust Super Cup spectacle to rugby league heartland in Gladstone.

The Capras game starts at 7pm on Saturday night at Marley Brown Oval, with curtain-raisers between Tannum and Calliope getting underway from 2.15pm.
