DD sides set for 2018 State Champ Campaigns


2018 QRU Junior State Championships 

The 2018 QRU Junior State Champs are quickly approaching us as our sides complete final preparations just 3 days out from our first fixtures. The squads will have their last training sessions on Thursday afternoon to polish up and put finishing touches on key areas of their games before being presented with their representative jerseys late Thursday afternoon. The sides will then leave Toowoomba on Friday morning for the Albany Creek GPS Rugby Club for day one of the carnival. 

The State Championships is a key part of the representative pathway, with the carnival, and progression to the City v Country fixtures post championships a great opportunity for our players to be scouted by Queensland Talent ID personnel. 

With 35 teams across all age groups our Downs sides will play a mix of teams from across Queensland and the Northern Territory across the 3 day carnival. Pending results from Friday and Saturday our Under 13's,14's and 16's will have the opportunity to play finals matches on Sunday also.
