Parliamentary Friends of Rugby League touch rivalry

The Queensland Government Parliamentary Friends of Rugby League touch football rivalry heads to Davies Park this evening. 

Queensland Rugby League Government Relations Manager Arthur Eustace-Earle said the sixth annual game between City and Country - the winners all five times - would kick off at Davies Park at 5.30pm. 

Members pay to play and all of the money raised this year will go to non-for-profit charity A Brave Life

A Brave Life, founded in 2015, provides a person-centred, positive approach to "meet the practical needs of young mother’s from a physical, emotional and educational perspective".  

A Brave Life focuses on two areas: 

  • Walking alongside young mothers, whilst encouraging them to finish their education, pursue their dreams and to be a positive role model for their child
  • And providing essential baby items to young mothers through our baby bundle program

Those playing include former NRL referee and current State Member for Everton Tim Mander, Deputy Premier Jackie Trad and Queensland Opposition Leader Deb Frecklington. 

Spectators include Linus Power, Joan Pease, Curtis Pitt, Shane King, Kim Richards, Peter Russo, Nikki Boyd, Rob Molhoek and Mick de Brenni.
