For the first time since the early 2000’s the Charters Towers Bulls Rugby Union Club have returned to the TDRU 1st Grade competition. After exiting from the 1st Grade competition over 15 years ago the Bulls have played primarily in the Second and Third-Grade competitions, producing more than one premiership over the last 5 years.
