TEAM LISTS: Trial Game 1

The ISC and QRL Women’s teams have both been announced for the first trial game of the 2020 season.

Up in Rockhampton the women’s will play the curtain raiser to the Broncos v Capras game while the ISC and junior teams will be playing at Tugan RLFC due to Souths Junions being too wet.

QRL Women’s

Magpies galore at NRL 9’s

Our Souths Logan Magpies will have plenty of representation in the Western Australian capital this weekend for the NRL 9s featuring both Men’s and Women’s Souths representatives past and present.

The Brisbane Broncos women’s teams will field a strong side which includes a myriad of State and International players for the star-studded lineup.

Four of the Broncos girls are from our Souths Logan Women’s Team with forwards Annette Brander and Rona Peters set to feature in the engine room of the fast pace 9’s alongside Australian Jillaroo’s winger Meg Ward and Souths newcomer for 2020 Hayley Maddick who will play her first tournament in Broncos colours.

The Men’s tournament shapes up to be one of the most exciting to date with some genuine superstars of the game lining up for their various clubs with 18 State of Origin representatives to take the field over the two days of action at HBF Park.

Last year’s leading try-scorer for the Magpies ISC team Matt Soper-Lawer will be pulling a Newcastle Knights jersey after impressing coach Adam O’Brien off the back of a stellar 2019 with Souths Logan where he crossed for 23 tries in as many games.

Curernt ISC squad members Tesi Nui and Illy Vudogo will be apart of Anthony Seibold’s strong Broncos men’s outfit where the outside backs will both pull on a Broncos jersey for the first time when they take on the Cowboys and Storm in pool games.

Magpies gearing up for 2020 trails

With February rolling around that means footy isn’t too far away for our four Souths Logan Magpies teams who are shaping up for the last weeks of preseason training before the trial games start next weekend.

Our ICM Constructions Intrust Super Cup team will play three trail games during the stanza, with the Black and White opening 2020 on February 15 against the Tweed Heads Seagulls at Souths Juniors, Acacia Ridge. The matchup will be a replay of round 22 last season where the Magpies were on the receiving end of a 42-20 loss at Davies Park and will be looking to get some momentum and test different combinations early in the season.

The team will also match up against old foes Easts Tigers at Langlands Park on February 22nd and then travel out to Greenbank to come up against the Ipswich Jets to round out the 2020 trails before the season gets started.

Our Global Product Search QRL Women’s Premiership team head up to Rockhampton to take on the CQ Capras on February 15 in a massive day of football at the Beef Capital being the curtain-raiser to the Brisbane Broncos v CQ Capras NRL trial game later that evening.

The girls will then return to Davies Park to take on Brothers Ispwich on February 23rd in the team’s first home game as a QRLW side and then will finish their three-game stand against the Burleigh Bears at Pizzey Park on the 29th of February.

Both our Mal Meninga U18s and Hastings Deering Colts U20’s teams will play the curtain raisers to the Intrust Super Cup teams on February 15th, 22nd and 29th against the same clubs as the senior’s team.

Red Socks Round Supports Little Queenslander

A purple spotty rash when Grayson was just eight months old was the first warning signs of his life-threatening genetic illness, which currently has no cure.

In December 2017, Rachel and Leighton noticed the rash on their baby’s body, and took him immediately for tests.

“Blood tests determined his platelet levels were nearly 0 and he was rushed into hospital,” Rachel recalled.

Following numerous tests failing to identify a cause, Grayson was flown from Mackay Base Hospital to the Queensland Children’s Hospital in Brisbane, where doctors took a sample from Grayson’s bone marrow and discovered he was experiencing bone marrow failure.

“Further genetic testing, identified that he has TERT gene mutations and short telomeres, finally resulting in a diagnosis, of Dyskeratosis congenita and unfortunately the more severe variant, Hoyeraal-Hreidarsson syndrome.

These conditions mean for the rest of Grayson’s life, there are high chances he may experience liver, lung or other organ failures, as well as a high risk of cancer.

“Over the past six months we have had nearly a dozen hospital stays in Queensland Children’s Hospital and Mackay Base Hospital, treating low blood levels, receiving blood transfusions, reoccurring bleeding issues, tests and procedures to identify the extent of Grayson’s medical issues and tissue typing to find a match for a bone marrow transplant,” Rachel explained.

Grayson has also been the recipient of two bone marrow transplants, while doctors monitor a range of other issues as a result of his condition, including serious concerns for his eye sight if not treated as soon as possible.

“The Bone marrow transplant is extremely risky to his life, however, we feel it is the best option for the longevity of his life,” Rachel explained.

“Grayson also has a small cerebellum (back of the brain) which has caused him to have significant developmental delays.  He has extensive physiotherapy, speech therapy and occupational therapy to help him gain motor skills and language development.”

“The bone marrow transplant will help to solve his blood and bone marrow issues, however there is no cure for his overall diagnosis and there is so much uncertainty for his future.”

“Grayson’s diagnosis was a long process, needing the genetic research to be done in order to completely understand what was causing his bone marrow failure and any implications for his future. It was devastating to find out he has a life-threatening illness that has been passed down genetically and may affect Grayson and any future children for our family.

“Grayson is at such a young age, so he is oblivious to the impacts this disorder is having on his life and causing his delays. He is still a happy, charming, TINY, one-year-old who brings joy to all those around him.”

  • One in three people will need blood in our lifetime, but only one in 30 currently gives blood.
