Wolf pack swells to 600 for carnival

NON stop rugby league action had Wondai Sports Ground filled to the brim.

More than 600 kids were on the field while their parents, grandparents and siblings cheered on from the sideline.  

Wondai Wolves Mini Mods carnival showed the sport has a strong future with plenty of interest at the junior level.  

Wolves' president Wally Knight said the annual carnival was important for developing the game in the South Burnett.  

"It gives us a chance, for us and the other local teams, to see what the competition is like in other places," he said.  

"It gives us a measuring stick on how we are going.  

"And it just showed how good Nanango u12s are, they are very competitive."  

Nanago Stags u12 side were undefeated and won the grand final against the Cherbourg Hornets, 16-4.

Knight said he had nothing but good feedback from the event.  

"People came up to us saying they would be coming back next year."  

"There were lots of kids. It was a well thought out carnival and I think everyone enjoyed it."
