Hundreds swim to the Fish Tank for Cods' Ladies' Day

THE Condamine Cods' annual ladies' day attracted hundreds of people to the Fish Tank on Saturday, with a number of glamorous women showing their support for the club.

It was the biggest number yet seen, with a smorgasbord of treats on offer for ladies as well as special seating, heaters and the luxuries one would expect at a day where the scent of perfume and champagne hung heavy in the air.

There were Brown Brothers wines, a hair and make-up station, barista coffee, along with clothing, home wares and jewellery stalls for the women, and some men, to enjoy between tackles.

The children had a jumping castle and minders to allow the mums a chance to let their hair down.

The Chinchilla River Rats helped organise a bus from the Club Hotel in Chinchilla, doing their part to bolster the great attendance on the day.

Sadly, the Codgers did not have anybody to play with their competitors pulling out at the last minute, though the old salts had a great day among the chaos.

The next Codgers game is expected to be held on August 9.

Unfortunately for the hundreds of supporters at the grounds, the on-field action was not as successful as what was happening off the field, despite brave efforts from all three local sides.

Chinchilla River Rats managed a tough 5-5 draw with Dalby Wheatmen in C-grade, Cods B-grade fell just short 14-12, and the Cods top side was not able to stop Dalby's undefeated run, going down 31-19, meaning Dalby retained the Crowe Horwath Shield.

This weekend, the Cods will stay at the Fish Tank.

Game times are as follows: 

1.30pm C Grade:

Chinchilla River Rats vs. Toowoomba Rangers

3.00pm A Grade:

Condamine Cods vs. St George Frillnecks
