Downs Rugby's Teenage season is now complete, punctuated with an incredibly successful grand final evening at Toowoomba Sports Ground on Friday.
The Darling Downs best young rugby stars shone brightly despite the constant rain. Toowoomba Bears made the most of the occasion, winning three of the four grand finals they contested. A good portion of the players are set to line up in the Southern Queensland Country Championships this weekend at Sunshine Coast Stadium in Downs Rugby representative jerseys.
"The grand finals were some of the best quality that I have seen over the last few years," Downs Rugby general manager Matthew Hammond said.
Downs Rugby major Junior/Teenage sponsor STAG Machinery Group/Case IH and Teenage Girls 7s Sponsor Mort & Co. would have been proud of the exhibition on show.
The RDO Equipment Risdon Cup match of the round featured the ladder leaders Toowoomba Rangers who travelled away to John Ritter Oval in Dalby to play the Dalby Wheatmen on Saturday. The Toowoomba Rangers were down 8-nil to then score two tries and a conversion to win 12-8.
Roma Echidnas secured a narrow 19-16 win over the Gatton Black Pigs.
STAG Machinery Emilee Cherry Cup Women's 7s featured carnivals on Saturday at Rowden Park, St George and Roma Echidnas Ladies Day at Gallas Fox Park, Roma.
Roma Echidnas White still lead the way, 15 competition points clear of Toowoomba Bears. Condamine Codettes in third place on the ladder are two competition points shy of Toowoomba Bears. USQ Saints are in fourth position.
