Cairns Brothers awards celebrate season

Cairns Brothers celebrated individual player achievements at their awards presentation held recently at Brothers Leagues Club Auditorium in Cairns.

After not having played rugby league for six years, Theo Majid capped off a great season when he was named A Grade Best and Fairest and was awarded the Bob Mulley Medal. 

Quinlyn Cannon won the prestigious Cairns District Rugby League Gold Medal for Best and Fairest A Grade Player at the annual gala dinner.

Cairns Brothers Reserve and Under 18 teams featured in the Cairns District Rugby League grand finals.

Despite a gallant display, Cairns Brothers were defeated by Mossman-Port Douglas 32-26, while the Under 18 team were unlucky to go down to Edmonton Storm in a two point thriller.

Evan Child and Joe Eichner have both re-signed for Northern Pride in 2020.

Less than two years after moving to Australia to pursue his dream of playing rugby league at an elite level, American Eichner made his Intrust Super Cup debut for Northern Pride against Burleigh Bears in August.
