Gladstone, get ready for a fantastic day of Origin Heroes!
If you haven’t heard already, the Queensland Maroons are coming straight from their game 1 win to Gladstone to celebrate with the people.
It all kicks off with the street parade TOMORROW (Tuesday 14th June) held in Goondoon Street and starting at 10.30am. Come on down to show your support for the mighty Maroons, show your team colours and bring along something for the boys to sign! There’s also a coaching clinic at 2pm at Marley Brown Oval for students that have been invited by their schools – more details below.
