Airlie hosts police league carnival
THE best Queensland Police rugby league has to offer battled it out in Airlie Beach last week, with teams from all over Queensland contesting the state championships.
The Central Queensland Razorbacks, Wide Bay Crocs, Southern Boards, South Eastern Muddies, Northern Stingers, Brisbane Bulldogs, Mount Isa Mongrels and the FNQ Marlins were all represented at the Whitsunday Sportspark last week with players vying for selection in the Queensland Police Service Rugby League Association team to contest the TriSeries against NSW Police and the Affiliated States and Territories Team.
It was the Muddies who were victorious, beating Stingers 18-0 in the grand final last Friday. The Mongrels claimed the Plate Final with a 26-14 win over the Boars in a bruising encounter while Master’s bragging rights were claimed by City, who triumphed over Country 20-8. Paul Renouf was named player of the final, Russell Satour the player of the carnival while Jared Knox’s physicality was awarded with the defensive player of the carnival award. The sportspark continues to prove itself as a venue and will host the NQ Rugby Championships this month.
