Paul Bowman cup on this weekend
YOUNG rugby league players from right across the region will converge on the Proserpine Junior Sporting Complex for the annual Paul Bowman Cup this weekend.
The Proserpine Brahmans will field two teams in the under-9 competition that is named in honour of Proserpine's finest rugby league export, North Queensland Cowboys' legend and State of Origin player Paul Bowman.
"Our focus is on fun, fair play and making sure that everyone gets a fair go regardless of their ability," Brahmans coach Stacey Gerhart said.
"This will be the last time we play together as a team this year and all the boys are excited and have been training hard for the weekend."
Gerhart will coach one side while Luke Green heads the other and both coaches are looking forward to seeing what their teams can do against the best from around the state.
Both Brahamans' teams are made up of a mixture of under-8 and under-9 players and each team will play four games on Saturday before at least one game and possibly finals on Sunday.
All the action kicks off at 9.30am on Saturday with two full days of games planned in one of the biggest junior tournaments in Queensland.
The young Brahmans are in action both days, and the game times for the two local teams on Saturday are 9.30am, 11am, 11.30am, 1pm, 1.30pm, 2pm and 3pm.
