Broncos make surprise visit to Gympie to launch Study Hub

GYMPIE'S Brisbane Broncos and motocross fans were treated to a surprise on Wednesday when Justin Hodges, Corey Parker and motocross ace Meghan Rutledge paid Goldfields plaza a visit.

The trio was in town for the grand opening of the Smart City Gympie, Study Hub.

Smart City is a registered training organisation and provides necessary education to people who want to either make a career change or up skill in their current field, a Smart City spokesperson said.

Gympie is a traditional Broncos stronghold and local fans turned up in large numbers to get a signature off the Broncos legends.

Motocross champion Meghan Rutledge also attracted large numbers of fans, signing everything from posters to footballs.

And while Smart Hub does not share any formal affiliation with the Broncos, potential students loved the visit.
