Pride v Easts postponed

The round 7 Intrust Super Cup match between the Northern Pride and Easts Tigers in Cairns has been postponed due to tropical cyclone Ita.

“These decisions are never easy, we always try to consider all options with safety and welfare of the clubs our first priority,’’ QRL Competitions Manager Jamie O’Connor said today.

“One of those alternatives was bringing the Northern Pride to Brisbane this weekend, however we felt that it was more important for the players and coaching staff to remain with their families.”

The match will now be played on Sunday, July 6 at Barlow Park in Cairns, a bye round for all other clubs due to the annual Residents match between Queensland and New South Wales on July 9.
