Gold Coast Titans

Quite fittingly, the “working man’s game” of rugby league is the favorite sport in Australia and the Gold Coast. Suckers for bona fide, grueling, sporting exploits, we Aussies live for each rugby highlight, and revere the best players as heroes. Here at Queensleigh Apartments our Broadbeach holiday apartments, our guests enrich their holiday by watching a gripping Gold Coast Titans game at Skilled Park. Come out and bring the family as there’s much to watch aside from the drop goals and blindsides.

Rugby, as we all know, is not only a sport but an obsession among Aussies. The first rugby game in the country was played in 1860 in New South Wales by the first rugby club in Sydney University. The first professional rugby competition would be held 40 years later. Nowadays, you can have a dose of Rugby action from the National Rugby League (NRL), which was founded in 1998 by the incorporation of Australian Rugby League and Super League competitions.

Some of the most popular NRL players to watch during a vacation in our beachfront apartments in Broadbeach are Scott Prince, Preston Campbell, and Anthony Laffranchi. Prince the co-captain of the Gold Coast Titans and 2010 International Halfback of the Year, is known for his talent and experience. Campbell meanwhile is the favorite of the Gold Coast crowd because of his on-field bravery and gentleman personality. Laffranchi is a relentless and hardworking backrower that’s just fun to watch.

You can also play some beach rugby with the littlies in Kurrawa Beach near Queensleigh Apartments. Watch the game with mates and a pick me up at the beachside cafes and restaurants for which Broadbeach is renowned for. Or pick up sporting accessories from the Pacific Fai and Oasis shopping centres. Whatever you yearn for - from rugby thrills to the restful pleasures of family holidays in the Gold Coast - awaits you at our cheap Broadbeach apartments.
