Wet weather had no impact on our little rugby league players

RAIN did not deter boys and girls as young as five who lined up in Warwick and District Junior Rugby League fixtures on a wet Saturday across the region.

It was the battle of the two clubs with most premiership success last season when Collegians hosted Goondiwindi in Warwick on a day which doubled as the annual Collegians charity day to help the battle against breast cancer.

The club raised a four-figure sum for Cancer Council Queensland.

The under-16 players from Collegians purchased jerseys paid for by five different sponsors which helped boost the fund-raising effort.

Collegians U7 to U12 players and the girls in leaguetag purchased pink wrist bands and U13 and U14 players purchased pink socks to help the battle against breast cancer. Goondiwindi and Collegians supporters bought tickets in two $50 boards to help the fundraising.
