Central Comets Pre-Season Challenge

Tickets for the Rockhampton Leagues Club Central Queensland Comets pre-season trials will go on sale on Monday, January 24.

The Comets pre-season will be a top class rugby league extravaganza for Central Queensland fans as the Comets play pre-season trials against NRL clubs on three of the four Saturday nights in February.

Games against National Rugby League clubs the Melbourne Storm (Feb 5), North Queensland Cowboys (Feb 12) and Canberra Raiders (Feb 26) have been scheduled to take place at Browne Park, Rockhampton.

The pre-season trials will be called the Minniecon and Burke Preseason Challenge after the locally owned employment services business threw its weight behind the Comets as a major jersey sponsor in a two year deal for the 2005/2006 seasons.

The QLD Rail Comets Development Squad will take part in the curtain raisers against Gladstone Valleys (Feb 5), Mackay Souths U19 (Feb 12) and Fitzroy Gracemere Sharks (Feb 26) in a showcase of Central Queensland's best up and coming young talent.

All ticket holders who pre purchase tickets from Stockland Rockhampton will go into a draw to win a $500 gift voucher to be drawn at half time of each of the games.

All main games will kick off at 8.00pm at Browne Park.
