– Today I explore the chaos
and excitement of a live game of footy
One of the things I have really gotten into over
the last couple of years has been NRL football, one of the three big football
codes in Australia (for those playing at home this is Rugby League, not Rugby
Union, or Australian Rules Football). My local team here is the Brisbane
Broncos, who were also my grandfather’s team, so that felt like a good place to
start. While I have been enjoying the games on TV I have not had the money to
go to a live game, well that all changed last night as I made the trip to
Suncorp Stadium thanks to a kind free ticket from a friend.
TL;DR – A powerful story of exploitation, honour, family and what it means to be free and does it come with a price
Score – 4 out of 5 stars
Review – Recently I was able to go along to the Pasifika Film Festival here in Brisbane put on by Event Cinemas, the NRL, Screen NSW and West Sydney University. It was a really interesting insight into Pacific culture and stories, the universal medium of expression. There was a selection of fascinating films from right across the Pacific and I was able to so see the amazing Mercenary of which we will be talking about today.
