QPICC 2018- Summary and Results

Three days of football, family and cultural festivities wrapped up on Sunday with the conclusion of the 2018 Queensland Pacific Island Cultural Carnival.

At the presentation ceremony, the tournament organisers thanked all the players, team coaching and management staff, medical teams, parents, families, friends, the Logan City Council, QRL and NRL staff, NRL medics, QPS representatives and the Beenleigh Multi-Sports for making this year’s QPICC a full on, family friendly fun weekend. An estimated 2,000 spectators walked through the gates on Friday and Sunday, with a whooping estimated 5,000 spectators on Saturday.

Held at Beenleigh’s Bill Norris Oval with the support of the QRL's South East Division, there was games played in the Under 14 Boys, Under 16 Boys, Under 18 Boys, Open Men and Open Women’s divisions as well as exhibition games in the Under 14 and 16 Girls divisions; with the following nations represented: Cook Islands, Maori, PNG, Samoa, Niue, and Tonga.

 The Open Men's and Open Women's finals were spirited games; with the Men's decider especially thrilling; with the two teams - Samoa and Maori - going hard at each other for the full duration of the match.
