Red Dog’s first plane flight!

Red is waiting for the game to start!

Red is heading off to Cairns this weekend, with his trainer and handler Justin Jordan, to watch the St.George Queensland Reds rugby team play in their first pre-season match against the Rebels.

The flight from Brisbane to Cairns will be Red’s first ever plane flight, and he’s taking it all in his stride!

Reporting from the airport this morning, Justin said “Red wanted to give the captain a hand, but for some reason they think they have it covered without him and prefer him to be downstairs! Red didn’t like me leaving him, but that’s normal. He walked straight into the crate as soon as I opened it.”

The match will be held at Barlow Park in Cairns this Saturday, 31 January, at 7:30pm AEST. Tickets are available from the Qld Reds website, and fans outside Cairns can watch the game live on REDS TV.
