A great night for all ages

More than 17,000 fans were treated to a superb spectacle on Saturday night as the LGIAsuper Community Hub returned to 1300SMILES Stadium and the Cowboys pulled off a thrilling 20-16 victory over the Raiders in golden point extra time.

It was the boot of Johnathan Thurston that sealed the result for the Cowboys but not in the manner you might expect.

JT’s field goal attempt hit the bottom of the upright and then somehow managed to stay in the field of play for Gavin Cooper to pounce on and score.

The ‘old guard’ of Thurston and Cooper might have secured the win but the focus was very much on youth at the LGIAsuper Community Hub as we welcomed Townsville PCYC.

Featuring three branches across the city, Townsville PCYC runs a series of recreational activities for young people of all backgrounds and abilities. From the Duke of Edinburgh award to leadership and volunteer programs, Townsville PCYC aims to offer ‘something for everyone.’ We are proud to have hosted an organisation committed to ‘building safer, healthier communities through youth development’. You can show your support by donating via their website.

The LGIAsuper Community Hub is located near the Western gate entrance of 1300SMILES Stadium. A big thank you to everyone who stopped by to say hi. It was great to see so many familiar faces and new members enjoying the festivities. Our Cowboys hand flags were a big hit!

If you missed out on signing up to the Howdy Club to receive your free Howdy Hat, don’t worry. The LGIAsuper Community Hub will be at every home game this season handing out exclusive merchandise.  We hope to see you there on Saturday 18 March when the Cowboys take on the Sea Eagles. Go Cowboys!
