Buzz builds for Bluff multicultural carnival
THE Central Queensland under-21 Capras side will be the team to beat at the Multicultural Rugby League Carnival at Bluff this Saturday.
Carnival enthusiast Scott Power said the young Capras side was "coming out to play", and he predicted it would be a tough side to beat.
Eight teams will be taking part in the carnival, including local side the Highlanders.
There will also be teams from Emerald, Woorabinda and Duaringa.
"There will be some razzle-dazzle rugby league played throughout the day," Power said.
"And Fitzroys from Rocky will be looking to make it back-to-back after winning last year's final.
"The football season is just around the corner, so it's an opportunity to see which teams are going to be competitive for the 2013 season."
The teams will play three games during the day in temperatures that won't be forgiving.
Power said the teams would need to keep up their water intake.
He encouraged supporters to get to Maccas Oval in Bluff early and stay for a day of exciting football.
"We are expecting a huge crowd to turn out," he said.
"We are expecting some good attacking football and a few tries to be scored throughout the day."
The day will also feature the players' sprint.
There will also be a junior game and a women's game.
Power said both of these matches were great spectacles last year.
He said there would also be rides for the kids, as well as snow cones and fairy floss.
"After the final, there will be entertainment, along with the presentations... to cap off a tremendous day" Power said.
