Elliott Lovejoy and MG chat more NRL fixtures for regional areas
Newly reinstalled Triple M Cairns Brekky announcer Elliott Lovejoy has strong feelings about ensuring that Cairns and other regional areas are exposed to enough elite sport.
Elliott recently spoke with Mark Geyer from Triple M’s ‘The Rush Hour’ about regional areas missing out on NRL Games.
“I remember as a kid, I used to live on Thursday Island,” said Elliott. “Mick DeVere and Petro Civoneceva… came up. From then on they were my favourite players.”
MG agreed that every NRL club should be playing at least one of their home games in rural or regional Australia.
“I can’t believe that. You telling me now that the Cowboys aren’t playing a game in Cairns is quite astonishing, to be honest,” said MG.
