Townsville and District Rugby Union


The CASTROL Senior Brolgas will look to return the favour from the NT Mosquitoes later this year when the side tours to the Top End to face the Mozzies at home. With the Brolgas going undefeated at the North Queensland Country Champs earlier this year the team will be keen to avenge a loss to the Mozzies at home in September 2016. Townsville coach Fran Lando is excited at the prospect of travelling to Darwin "The Brolgas have a strong history of touring over the 50 years of Townsville Rugby and having toured domestically and internationally myself as a Brolgas player I know the playing group will be excited for this tour" Lando said. 

The CASTROL Brolgas will depart for Darwin on Wednesday the 20th of September just two weeks after the Grand Final is played. The Townsville team will spend 5 days in the Top End facing off against a Junior Mozzies team first before taking on the NT Mozzies rep side over the weekend of the 23rd and 24th of September before returning Monday the 25th. The Tour is the Brolgas first to Darwin with the TDRU planning future tours in the coming years ahead. "We will be looking to make additions to the squad that played in the NQ Country Champs and are hoping to select players on form for the tour with a mixture of youth and experience" Coach Lando said.
