Broncos will run water for kids during February visit

RUGBY LEAGUE: There will be mini carnivals for four age groups as Brisbane Broncos players help out at the first gala day for 2019 in the Warwick and District Junior Rugby League.

The Brisbane Broncos will be in town on February 15-16 and will play Souths Logan Magpies in a trial game at Father Ranger Oval at 6pm on February 16.

Some players with NRL experience will play for the Broncos against the Magpies from the Intrust Super Cup.

The two curtain raisers will be between teams from Toowoomba Clydesdales and the Wests Panthers in the Brisbane Rugby League competition.

The Collegians and Eastern Suburbs clubs will provide the fields for six-a-side games in under-7, under-8, under-9 and under-10 age groups. Broncos players will coach and run the water for the players.

Clubs in the Warwick and District Junior Rugby League have been given the chance to nominate more than one team for each age group.

There will be a come-and-try day for girls in the under-12 and under-15 age groups which will introduce them to tackling.

NRL game development staff will conduct a skills session of catch and pass before the tackling coaching. The WDJRL is hoping to organise girls (tackle) rugby league for the first time this season.

There will also be a skills session for under-17 league tag players.
