After connecting with communities across Queensland as part of the successful ‘Reds to Regions’ tour, the St.George Queensland Reds have announced they’ll take time out to visit Brisbane metropolitan Rugby clubs during their first scheduled bye week of the Harvey Norman Super Rugby AU season. 

The entire 38-man Queensland squad will be split-up and travel to 19 separate clubs as far west as Ipswich, to Caboolture in the north and out to Redland Bay south-east of Brisbane.

The players will conduct clinics with junior players from the club and also engage in community activities to strengthen the connection between grassroots rugby and the elite level. 

QRU State Development Manager Grant Dwyer said: “Following the success of Reds to Regions, our connection with the Rugby community across Queensland is very strong and these visits will provide another opportunity to inspire the next generation of Queensland Reds players.

“To achieve that personal connection with the many clubs, volunteers and players is through being present and for the Reds players to meet these great people in our Rugby community, who give an enormous amount to the game, will be something special. 

“As COVID curtailed any opportunity to complete the visits in 2020, it was extremely important that we honoured all club visits we were unable to do last year.

“Clubs are currently in the thick of player recruitment and retention activities, so being able to provide support and also an extra push to the most important nursery for junior Rugby is critical,” said Dwyer. 

The visits will take place on two separate evenings this week with three on Wednesday night and the remaining 16 taking place on Friday kicking off at 6pm AEST on both nights. 

The QRU will also be conducting junior skills sessions to support Queensland pathway age group coaches at multiple locations across the metropolitan area on Monday 29 March. 

Club coaches can also get involved with the QRU’s upcoming Foundation Coach, Front Row passport and Assessing Coach courses scheduled for 12-14 March during the Brisbane Junior Rugby Union coaching weekend.
