Netball star stands tall at Sports Expo and Sign-on

Netball sharp-shooter Romelda Aiken will be a special guest at our annual Sports Expo and Sign-on Day in February.

Standing 196cm tall, the Queensland Firebirds goal-shooter will certainly give young sports fans something to look up to at the MECC on February 12 from 9am to 1pm.

Some NQ Cowboys rugby league stars will also be attending the expo as they’re playing a pre-season trial match in Mackay the night before.
