Downs Rugby's Teenage Grand Finals are being played on Friday, June 3 evening at the Toowoomba Sports Ground Berghofer Stadium.
We thank major Junior and Teenage Boys sponsor STAG Machinery and Teenage Girls 7s sponsor Mort & Co for their invaluable support of community Rugby.
Our social media and DownsRugbyTV page will broadcast a live stream of the grand finals from 4.30pm all the way through to Under 16 Boys from 9pm. All details and tickets are available at www.downsrugby.com.au.
Last weekend was punctuated by glorious weather and two very successful ladies' days.
At Gold Park, the Toowoomba Rangers hosted a successful capacity event highlighted with a thumping 78-12 victory over the Roma Echidnas in Round 7 of the RDO Equipment Risdon Cup A Grade Men's competition.
At Southern Cross Sporting Reserve, the Toowoomba Bears as part of their Ladies' Day, hosted the in-form Goondiwindi Emus.
After Goondiwindi had an 84 point win a week earlier, the clash last Saturday was a close 30-20 win for the Emus.
Much credit goes to the Toowoomba Bears for keeping last year's Risdon premiers to a 10-point margin.
Gatton's Black Pigs earned a much needed 34-7 win over the Condamine Cods at Risdon Oval, Warwick.
It was the first footy played at Warwick after recent flooding. The Water Rats Club and president Tess Enchelmaier, have shown much resilience.
Dalby Wheatmen travelled to USQ Rugby Oval to play the Saints. Samuel Laffey crossed over for two meat pies. Dalby defested USQ Saints 38-13.
The RDO Equipment Risdon Cup Ladder after 7 rounds has the Toowoomba Rangers on 25 competition points, followed by Dalby Wheatmen (24) in second place, Goondiwindi Emus (21) in third place and USQ Saints (14) in fourth position.
On Saturday, Round 8 RDO Risdon Match of the Round is Dalby Wheatmen hosting the Toowoomba Rangers at John Ritter Oval, featuring first verse second on the Ladder.
Round 5 of the STAG Machinery Emilee Cherry Cup Women's 7s goes ahead on Saturday, with carnivals at Gallas Fox Park, Roma and at Rowden Park, St George.
Downs Rugby is fielding an unprecedented eight (8) XV-a-side representative teams to compete in the South Queensland Country Championships at the Sunshine Coast Stadium from June 10-11.
