Kelly seeks out Cutters interest in Border Rugby League push

RUGBY LEAGUE: A meeting will be held on Wednesday to discuss the possibilities of re-forming the Border Rugby League.

James Kelly is co-ordinating the Killarney push to re-start the BRL.

"There are people keen to see Killarney playing again in a BRL competition,” Kelly said.

"A lot of people have asked me about what is happening with the football.

"There is no doubt they have missed having a club and a BRL competition.”

Kelly is seeking to find out the interest in the Killarney area to reform the team and restart the Border Rugby League.

The meeting will be at 6.30pm Wednesday in the Stanthorpe Gremlins clubhouse at Sullivan Oval.

This season, Stanthorpe played in the TRL second-division competition and made the top five.

Tenterfield played in group 19 in New South Wales, a competition they were part of before the BRL started in the 1990s. Inglewood and Killarney clubs could not form committees for the 2018 season but the loss of home rugby league in a small community can be devastating.

Neither town has a cricket team at present either, clubs that have previously played in the Warwick competition

People interested in rugby league at Killarney are welcome to call Kelly on 0452417408 or attend the meeting.
