There is a lot of football still to be played but Josh Addo-Carr cannot wait to run out onto a packed Suncorp Stadium in Round 10.
Melbourne Storm will once again return to Brisbane for the NRL Double Header when they take on the Gold Coast Titans on May 12.
That same night will see the Manly Sea Eagles take on the Brisbane Broncos who will be visitors in their own home.
The Brisbane Double Header now stands as an annual blockbuster event on the NRL calendar having attracted massive crowds of 44,000 and 52,000 in its first two years.
This year’s event is once again sure to be a must-see for every Brisbane rugby league fan, regardless of which team they support.
For Addo-Carr, he cannot wait to put on a show for the locals.
“They are so passionate about their footy up here,” Addo-Carr said.
“We’ve got a lot of Queenslanders in our side. Rugby league is so big up here and every time I come up here to play it is for a big occasion.”
Suncorp Stadium is currently in the process of having its surface re-perfected after international music sensation Ed Sheeran stopped by on his Australian tour.
However in less than two months Storm will be back to play on, rather than work on the hallowed turf.
“We are so grateful to have the Double Header, it is such a boom game for Brisbane,” Suncorp Stadium General Manager Alan Graham said.
“Fans are getting such great value with two games for the price of one, the Double Headers have always been well attended plus having two great partners in the Storm and Manly.”
