Mareeba celebrate their Under 14 title.

The Cairns District Junior Rugby League season has drawn to a close with an impressive 14 grand final games played at Jones Park on Saturday.

The Cairns District JRL encompasses teams from Mossman to the north, Mareeba to the west and Tully to the south.

The finals format introduced this year saw additional teams playing, with the CDJRL Cup in all competition grades (12s-16s) as well as the Plate in the Under 12s, 13s and 14s grades.

In addition to finals games, Under 16 girls played an exhibition game and long serving volunteers were acknowledged for their contribution to junior rugby league.

Innisfail Brothers JRL President, Rod Bradtke, was presented with the Cairns District JRL Volunteer of the Year award, with Kay Slade and Lisa Rapira having the newly-opened food court area named in their honour.
