For the young Nanango and Kingaroy players the opportunity to play a game at Suncorp Stadium before a Broncos game was a dream come true.

Local under-8 players Tyler Kurz, Tariq Smallwood, Kobi Smallwood, and Evie Ogden played alongside the Augathella Meatants at Suncorp Stadium on Thursday, 15 April.

The players got the opportunity when a mutual friend from Augathella reached out after their local junior team applied through the Broncos to participate in a mini-league competition.

The Augathella local team only had four players so they offered the remaining spots to Tyler, Tariq, Kobi, and Evie.

The country kids came away with a win with five tries to four, but the biggest prize was getting the opportunity to play at the big stadium.
