Southern Suburbs Rugby League Club CEO, Jim McClelland is giving away free tickets to this Sunday’s match to any Westender readers who want them.

“It’ll be a great day, first home game of the year, and we would love to see as many West Enders down here as we can. As a boy growing up in West End, I could not wait for Sunday to come along, as did all my class mates at West End State School. West End was the Magpies,” he said.

The tickets are available from Terry White (was JP Davies) Pharmacy on Vulture and Boundary, Micah Projects, the Boundary Hotel and the Archive bar.

The main match kicks off at 2 pm on Sunday 16th with a Colts game at from 10.30am.

Mr McLelland is inviting you to “Come and discover all the joy and excitement of grass roots Rugby League, when the Mighty Magpies kick off the 2014 Intrust Super Cup campaign, taking on the Burleigh Bears in their first home game of the season, at Davies Park in West End – the home of THE MAGPIES and Rugby League in the inner Southside of Brisbane since 1909.”

Bring a rug, pack a picnic, and let the kids kick a footy around in a safe and friendly environment that The Intrust Super Cup offers.

The club features a fully licensed bar and snacks and other refreshments are available.

McLelland explained that this year’s cup build toward a national competition.

“In 2014 the game has introduced a National Championship, played in two conferences, QLD and NSW. So [we have] the opportunity to play on the national stage in a curtain-raiser to the NRL Grand Final if we happen to win the Queensland Cup Final. Could it be the year of the Magpie?”
