IT was an historic occasion and a massive day of rugby league at Tully Showgrounds last Saturday, when the NQ United and Queensland Outback women’s teams faced off for the first time in the annual representative clash.
The Super Saturday kicked off with FNQ junior games, three CDRL games between the Tully Tigers and the Ivanhoes, as well as two extra games between NQ United and the Queensland Outback Open Men’s and Women’s teams.
For nine years, the fierce rivalry between the rural and remote sides has been described as ‘Origin-like.’
NQ United teams had players from the Gulf of Carpentaria, Northern Peninsula area, and Torres Strait Islands.
The Queensland Outback Open Men’s team featured players from Mount Isa, Roma, Charleville, Barcaldine, Wullumbilla/Surat, and St George.
Players from Longreach, Tambo, Hughenden, Blackall Cloncurry, and Ilfracombe made up the Open Women’s team.
The Queensland Government supported Queensland Rugby League’s Community Reconciliation Event – Queensland Outback vs North Queensland United – through the Tourism and Events Queensland’s Year of Indigenous Tourism Festivals and Events Fund.
Traditional dancers from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures were a highlight, as well as an Indigenous art exhibition and paintings.
Queensland Outback defeated NQ United by 20 -8 in the Open Women’s match to lift the unique Skytrans Challenge trophy.
In the Open Men’s game, NQ United claimed the Skytrans Challenge trophy with a 30 – 16 win over Queensland Outback.
