The Battle for North QLD Rugby sepremecy will be revived in September with Rugby heavyweights Townsville Brolgas and FNQ Thunder (Cairns) taking each other on in three added Junior Grades and one added Senior grade over a home and away series.
The Junior Brolgas Under 13s, 14s and 16s fresh from a State Titles campaign in Toowoomba, will head North to Cairns on the 1st of September to play as curtain raisers to the Brolgas vs Thunder Senior QLD Country Championship matches (Under 19s & Mens). The Festival of Rugby held at Stan Williams Park in Cairns will also feature the Brolgas Senior Womens team facing off against FNQ in a one off match kick starting the Senior Rep Programs for the Townville Brolgas.
The Brolgas will then welcome FNQ Juniors to Townsville two weeks later to play at Mike Carney Toyota Park the Home of Rugby in Townsville on Saturday the 14th of September. These matches will be the precursor to the Senior Brolgas only home game of the QLD Country Championships facing off against the Gold Coast in a mouth watering clash.
