Real life superheroes inspire all

LGIAsuper Community Hub Townsville

It might have been Marvel Heroes round in the NRL but the real superheroes in North Queensland were the emergency services and local council workers who protected their communities during Cyclone Debbie.

The LGIAsuper Community Hub was proud to be at 1300SMILES Stadium on Friday night to watch the Cowboys in action and show our support for the people of North Queensland. Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by the natural disaster.

Because of Cyclone Debbie, our featured charity, Foodbank was unable to join us at the Hub. While we were looking forward to sharing our community space with Australia’s largest hunger relief organisation, we thank them for putting the North Queensland people first and providing emergency relief to those in need. To show your support, please donate via their website.

On field, the Cowboys lifted local spirits with a hard-fought 20-6 victory over a committed South Sydney Rabbitohs side.

After a tight opening quarter, Johnathan Thurston broke the deadlock with a penalty goal before LGIAsuper player ambassador Michael Morgan sliced through the defence for the first try of the night in the 27th minute.

Gideon Gela-Mosby finished off a slick backline move to score the Cowboys’ second try as the home side raced to a 14 nil lead.

The second half was a much tighter affair but the Cowboys defence held strong. Friday night’s win takes them to fourth position on the NRL ladder.

While the atmosphere at 1300SMILES Stadium is always electric, Howdy Club members can now show their support on the road courtesy of our round 5 merchandise item, a limited edition car window hanger!
