PRIME Minister Julia Gillard may be a Melbourne Storm supporter, but for one day at least she showed her keen support yesterday for a Central Queensland NRL team while on a visit to Rockhampton

Denis Keefe, CQ NRL bid chairman, said he was really happy the PM had an interest in the regional economy.

"The NRL bid is one of the massive bids on for the economy of Central Queensland and I'm very happy she's supporting it," he said.
