Have your say to help foster future talent

Avid rugby league fans have all witnessed the sublime skills of two of the game’s biggest stars – David Fifita and Ali Brigginshaw.

A genuine love for the game, hard work and dedication have underpinned their rise to the top.

But what also cannot be overlooked is the role of strong, sustainable competitions that provide the catalyst for players to not only enjoy the sport, but potentially achieve higher honours through the many pathways our game provides.

A quick glance at the recent playing records of both Fifita and Brigginshaw demonstrate rugby league’s unique ability to provide opportunities for participants to progress from club football into higher representative honours.

In 2018, Souths Acacia Ridge-junior Fifita played for the Magpies in the Auswide Bank Mal Meninga Cup and Intrust Super Cup, and wore his state’s colours at an under 18 representative level, before becoming a regular in the Brisbane Broncos NRL team.

That same year, Brigginshaw played for Ipswich Brothers in the SEQ Division 1 competition, before embarking on games with Queensland City at the Women’s National Championships.

All of which led to a prestigious Queensland jersey, NRLW selection with the Broncos, as well as a Test match with the Australian Jillaroos.

These achievements are examples of why the QRL is working strategically to further strengthen community rugby league through its Boundaries Committee.

This committee was established by the QRL Board to review the boundaries of the leagues of Brisbane (south of the Brisbane River), Gold Coast and Ipswich to ensure rugby league is administered effectively and efficiently for participants, while taking into account the high population growth corridors in these leagues.

Following collaboration with the boards of Rugby League Brisbane, Rugby League Gold Coast and Rugby League Ipswich, a Phase 1 survey was released in late-May.

In order to assist the Boundaries Committee determine the key considerations from the Phase 1 findings, a Phase 2 survey has been established.

Clubs, leagues, players / parents and volunteers from within the South East region are encouraged to complete the survey by August 31.

In an added incentive to have your say, those who complete the survey will be in the running to win a $100 Maroons Shop voucher.

The club with the most responses will also win a signed 2019 Queensland Maroons State of Origin jersey.
