Should clubs approach QRL?
AS THERE is no set process there is some conjecture over whether clubs should approach the state’s governing body but it is something O’Connor encouraged.
He said it usually depended on where the clubs were and whether they had existing partnerships with QRL sides.
“I know at the moment Charters Towers are working closely with Townsville Blackhawks but we encourage clubs to come directly to us,” O’Connor said.
“We are hands-on with all games.”
So hands-on that local clubs and associations don’t necessarily have to fork out funds for the games.
Instead, O’Connor said the QRL wouldn’t take the revenue back to Brisbane – it remains with the clubs.
“There is no requirement for clubs to come up with a financial figure,” O’Connor said.
HANDS-ON: Intrust Super Cup general manager Jamie O’Connor.
