Renouf throws support behind Murri Carnival vaccination drive

Broncos legend Steve Renouf has urged fans to get along to the Murri Carnival and roll up their sleeves for a COVID-19 vaccination with preliminary final tickets on offer for the first 2000 people who get the jab at the carnival.

Backed by Deadly Choices The #stepupforthejab campaign will offer a range of prizes for anyone who gets their vaccination at the rugby league festival at the South Pine Sports Complex.

"This year's Arthur Beetson Foundation Murri Carnival is celebrating 10 years of the carnival but we thought with everything happening around COVID it would also do something around encouraging Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to get vaccinated," Renouf said.

"We're making a big push for mob to get vaccinated and that will continue through to Saturday.

"Anyone who comes to the carnival can get one. With the other Murri carnivals through the partnership with Deadly Choices and the awareness around Indigenous health we've had different health checks.

"It's a healthy carnival so it's smoke-free and alcohol-free and no sugary food as well."

As well as double passes to this weekend’s preliminary finals at Suncorp Stadium there's also Rebel Sport vouchers, a DC retro shirt and plenty more on offer.

The carnival features matches for boys in the under 14, 16 and 18 grades, plus under 15 and 17 girls.

Queensland Merit Teams will be selected after the carnival at the end of the week.
