Do you have a missing piece of rugby league history that could spark interest and fond memories for one of Queensland's most ardent rugby league communities?

Just a few weeks out from celebrating their 50th year anniversary on Saturday, September 1, the Goondiwindi Boars are on the lookout for memorabilia which captures the essence of their existence.

Still playing today in the colours maroon and blue to reflect their geographic location on the Queensland-New South Wales border, the Boars are set to celebrate a rollercoaster history at the Goondiwindi Cultural Centre.

Known currently as home to North Queensland Cowboy Ethan Lowe, Goondiwindi has supplied numerous players and officials who have made their mark on the game.

The southern Darling Downs town was also host to some legendary figures in rugby league - Bob Bax, Brian Bevan and Dave Brown - who lived there at various times.

The Boars first came into being in 1969, though they were preceded by McIntyre Rugby League Football Club, which represented the area in the NSW Group 5 competition.

They current compete in the Toowoomba Rugby League, having also spent a brief amount of time in the Border Rugby League, along with the Dalby and District competition and NSW Group 19.

This season they finished in ninth place in the TRL, with three wins from 16 starts.

"It's 50 years of ups and downs, but we're still going," spokesperson Adrian Christopher said.

"We look forward to a special weekend and offering a warm welcome to everyone who attends the celebrations."

Anybody with rugby league memorabilia which pertains to Goondiwindi is invited to contact club president Tony Carter on 0428 718 199.

All items placed on display will be returned.

The club is also eager for people who can assist with contact details for former Goondiwindi players and officials.
