The Queensland Rugby League Football Department have released the Under 18 Mal Meninga Cup draw for this season.
This year sees a change in the format of the competition, with last year’s Pool format making way for an all-inclusive structure.
The new format, while providing for a more balanced competition, is also more costly, meaning that it is only possible to play semi-finals and a grand final rather than accommodate the cross-pool quarter finals of the past few years.
In this year’s competition, the top four (4) from each competition will progress to the finals with the semi finals format to be 1 v 4 and 2 v 3.
