ORANGE RULES

I support the Brisbane Roar Football team. They have won the Premiership and the Grand Final of the Australian League competition for the third time. They wear orange and black team colours a throw back from when they first started as "Hollandia" with a dutch connection. It is the only  A League team in Queensland and we are proud that it is the best in Australia. It was a nail biting match to watch as the opposition 'Sydney Wanderers' were dominant in the first half of the game and the score was 1 nil against our boys until the last 5 mins of the game when they finally equalised. The game then went into 30 mins extra time when we scored the winning goal. RAH! GO THE ROAR!

  3. We're Roar fans too! What a great game that one was! The Roar organisation do a lot to encourage very young children to try their game. The conducted a 6 week course from preppies to Year 3 at my grandson's school. They brought an amazing bright orange inflatable playing field which the kids loved. The club kit prizes for all participants - girls as well as boys- were a hit too. I'm off now to see a little kids game!

  11. It's always such a buzz when the home team win.. go the orange and black :)
    p.s. I did enjoy the film Diane, it was definitely a wee bit quirky but Ralph Fiennes was brilliant and there were some excellent cameo rolls. You should give it a go.
