Murri Teams to Tour PNG and NZ

THE QRL and QAIHC Arthur Beetson Foundation have today announced that two Murri teams will be touring in October.


The Murri Under 15 side will tour Papua New Guinea while the Queensland Murri Mens team will travel to New Zealand to play the New Zealand Maori squads.


While in Papua New Guinea the Under 15 Murris will play two matches between October 3 - 7.


The team will have no time to rest as they head into camp straight after the State Carnival, but at this stage only the coaching staff have been announced for the Papua New Guinea Under 15 tour and the Under 16 All Stars teams (see below).


Over in New Zealand the Queensland Murri Mens side will play two matches against the Maori in Rotorua and Huntly between October 16 - 27.


The team of 20 will be selected from the Murri Rugby League carnival and only those players registered with the QRL for the 2013 season will be eligible.


The coaching staff named for the Murri Mens team are detailed below.
