Broncos to tour Toowoomba this week


The Brisbane Broncos will take over Toowoomba this week for two days of community events, in the lead up to the team’s pre-season trial game at Clive Berghofer Stadium on Saturday.

The tour (15 and 16 February), delivered in partnership with Arrow Energy, includes a Broncos visit to select schools, a junior clinic for 350 children, and a business dinner function with Coach Wayne Bennett.

“Arrow has hosted the junior clinic in Toowoomba for a few years now and the support from the local community is outstanding,” Arrow Energy Vice President External Relations and Tenure Management Leisa Elder said.

“It’s not every day children have the chance to take to the field with their sporting heroes, and we’ve already had a great amount of interest in the clinic.”

One lucky child who attends the clinic will receive a complete game day experience for Saturday’s trial game in Toowoomba, with a family pass and opportunity to run the team out onto the field.

Ms Elder said 2018 is the seventh year Arrow has been the official energy partner of the Brisbane Broncos.

“Arrow and the Broncos have worked together since 2012 and it’s community events, such as our Toowoomba Tour, that has made our partnership so successful over the years,” she said.

Brisbane Broncos prop and fan favourite Sam Thaiday has played a leading role in these events.

“We’ve had a great partnership with Arrow over the last few years, and a key part of it has been getting out to different communities and speaking with school children about healthy lifestyle choices and keeping active,” Sam said.

“I’m looking forward to getting out to Toowoomba and spending time with our fans in the lead up to our trial game on Saturday.”
