Cowboys and Townsville Old Boys suit up for charity match

The Townsville & Districts Mendi Blackhawks have announced their Intrust Super Cup Round 6 match against the Redcliffe Dolphins this Saturday, will be a fundraiser for the devastating floods that hit Townsville and regional areas in February.

Brothers Leagues Club Townsville will donate $3 from every ticket sold at the gate, plus a further $5000 to be equally shared between the SES Townsville and the Queensland Country Women’s Association.

Mendi Blackhawks CEO Justin Wilkins said there were plenty of activities throughout the day, with the highlight being a Cowboys Old Boys Invitational v Mendi Blackhawks Invitational Old Boys charity game, kicking off straight after the main match.

“This day will be a wondering opportunity to give back to our community,” Wilkins said.

“How good will it to see names like Bowen, Payne, Tate and Bowman running around together again, as well some of our Mendi Blackhawks inaugural players, Anthony Mitchell and Neville Costigan.”

The Redcliffe Dolphins have also generously donated to the day, with donations made on behalf of the staff of the Redcliffe Leagues Club who have pooled their tips over the last year.

“Our staff always donate their tips to a worthy cause, and when we got news of the flood disaster that hit Townsville earlier in the year we knew we wanted to help out,” Dolphins CEO Tony Murphy said.

Popular Townsville band Zacariah will also be playing straight after the game to keep the night going.

“We would love to see as many people as possible come out to the game,” Wilkins said.

“It might be the last time you get to see these legends play together, and it’s for a good cause.”
