Canetoads Shine At Queensland Country Championships

On the last weekend of June, four Burdekin Rugby Union Canetoads players put it on the field for the Queensland Country Championships in Rockhampton.

Andy Smyth, Caitlin Holmes, Kelsey Hesp and Nathan Steel brought their all for a jampacked weekend from 28 June to 30 June.

“The Country Championships are a celebration of the talents, passion, and dedication of the Queensland Country Rugby community,” said Queensland Country Rugby Union President Mr. Rod Hohn.

The event was one of the biggest in the championship’s history, with over 1,000 players, staff and volunteers in attendance from all areas of Country Queensland.

Spirits were high, and game faces were on for what was an excellent display of skill and dedication for the 2024 Queensland Country Championships.
