Trying time – but junior rugby league is back

Liam Swarbrick takes on Brothers' defence

IT has been a trying time for all Covid-affected sports – but junior rugby league is back in Ingham.

And after the many trials he’s faced off the pitch, Grant Swarbrick will be hoping to see a few tries on it this weekend.

Grant is one of the people who has been working tirelessly to get health plans approved to allow local sport to start up again.

A feast of rugby league is on offer on Saturday and local fans are being urged to support Ingham’s young charges.

Grant said: ‘It’s been a bit of work from a small committee perspective, but seeing the kids enjoying themselves at training makes the hard work worthwhile’.

No-one in the world loves their junior rugby league like North Queensland – get down and support your local teams!
