DEADLY 7S PROGRAM UNLEASHED

The Queensland Rugby Union began making inroads into New South Wales territory this week.

The ‘Deadly 7s’ program has been rolled out at Toomelah Public School and Boggabilla Central, in a bid to get local children playing the sport.

“Gives us an opportunity to motivate and inspire the next crop of young Indigenous rugby union stars.”

It’s hoped Australia’s next gem could be uncovered in the north west.

“A lot of them saw that Kurtley Beale had worn the national Indigenous jersey just three weeks ago against the All Blacks, and it really resonated with them a lot.”
