CDJRL report

The 2014, Cairns District Junior Rugby League season kicked off over the weekend.

With the redevelopment of Jones Park, the home of CDJRL, still taking place some clubs were required to host more games than usual making Saturday a long day of football for some.

Edmonton Storm had the privilege of hosting the first game of the season at 5:30pm Friday evening and then the final match of the round at 4:00pm on Saturday.
