The NRL Footy Season has been meandering on now for a few weeks with some trial games and the like, but it starts to ramp up this weekend with the NRL All-Stars taking on the Indigenous All Stars at Skilled Stadium on the Gold Coast. Being on the Coast this morning, the hype and visitors in town for the game were evident in Surfers Paradise. Let's hope the game and the atmosphere again lives up to the hype. It is one of those games that you really don't mind who wins, as long as it entertains.
The Charity Shield on the other hand, marks the Official start to the season for Dragons Fans and long suffering Rabbitohs fans. The game is typically hard and played with some emotion and every time Souths win, it starts the emotional roller coaster of the season, while Saints fans live with the result. This time, the defending Premiers are playing in this game, and it has been a long wait to say that. Rabbitohs fans will be wanting to say the same thing in 2012.
Anyway folks, its game on. NRL2011.
