Should clubs ap­proach QRL?

Isis Town and Country - - Sport -

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.
