Established in 1967, the Townsville and District Rugby Union has been a reputable organisation in the North Queensland community for over 40 years.The Townsville and District Rugby Union comprises of 2000 registered players in our local junior and senior competitions and are also heavily involved in the organization of internal competitions at the Army Barracks and James Cook University.
The TDRU has a strong representative Rugby Program, the Brolgas, which spans from the First Grade, Women’s and Under 19’s in the Seniors to the U16 to U12 in the Juniors. The Seniors compete in the NQ division of Queensland Country State Championships which is played over a weekend in May. The Juniors compete for a chance to represent NQ at the Queensland Junior Rugby Union State Championships which is a three-day carnival. The Townsville and District Rugby Union encompass the north coast area between Ingham in the north, the Burdekin to the South and Charters Towers to the West. We have worked diligently to expand the game of Rugby Union by developing and supporting the grass roots of Rugby, which is the juniors who become the players, coaches and supporters of the future.
This year we see the the TDRU celebrate 50 years and as such AGC are again sponsoring the TRDU including additional sponsorship for the referees and women's leagues.
