Full time fun at Cowboys home game

If you’ve ever dreamed of running in the footsteps of your rugby league heroes at the North Queensland Toyota Cowboys’ home ground, Saturday night is your big chance.

The Cowboys are running Full Time Field Time at this weekend’s home game – the chance to run on to the field post-match at 1300SMILES Stadium.

Entry to the playing surface will be via the south-western and north-western gates once the siren sounds 15 minutes after full time of the NRL clash.

Members and supporters will be able to bring their own rugby league ball to play with and there will also be Cowboys balls, already inflated, available for purchase from the Team Shop merchandise stands around the ground.

There’ll be goalkicking tees available to have a shot for two points and a pass the ball game for the kids to try.

Fresh from his State of Origin duties, Cowboys centre Brent Tate today gave a group of pupils from the Ryan Catholic College a sneak preview of tomorrow night’s post-match fun.

“Running on the field after the game was something I would have loved to do as a kid,” Tate said.

“It just looks so inviting and you want to get out there and emulate what you’ve just seen.

“I’m pretty envious of those kids who are going to be able to do that tomorrow night.

“Hopefully there’ll be plenty of them out there having some fun, kicking the ball around and trying to score a few tries.”
