Feast of footy on the menu at Cairns Brothers reunion

A reunion weekend for all Cairns Brothers players and officials is being held this weekend, featuring a feast of rugby league action on Saturday.

A welcome function will be held tomorrow night (Friday, June 14) in Dreams Bar (upstairs at Brothers Leagues Club), followed by junior and senior games at Stan Williams Park on Saturday (June 15).
