Feeling the magic in Brisbane

The view from the front row at Magic Round this year.

By Liam Emerton

Despite the dismal weather, Magic Round lit up Brisbane and kept the NRL action hot at Suncorp Stadium.

Almost 150,000 fans attended the weekend which saw some great upsets and some strong results for the teams.

CQ Today’s own Greg Thompson went down for the three-day spectacular and had an incredible time with the atmosphere being unbelievable.

And we asked our Facebook follows what their thoughts of the weekend were and these were their responses:

Bev Johnston: Watching Selwyn Cobbo striding out and leaving his opponents behind and the joy on his face after scoring a try.

Michael Jeffcoat: The Broncos putting on a defence lesson-long overdue.

Dennis Taylor: The Newcastle Knights snapping a terrible 7 game losing streak by beating the bulldogs which led to Trent Barrett throwing in the white towel.

Blake Brincat: The Warriors putting on 24 unanswered points in 17 minutes to almost cap off a magic comeback.
