NRL premiership trophy comes to Moreton Bay

Posted: 1pm 21 Sep 2021

Rugby league juniors and even the Dolphins of Moreton Island were given a close-up look at the NRL premiership trophy when it stopped into the Moreton Bay Region on its tour of Queensland yesterday.

St. George Illawarra Dragons star forward Josh Kerr took a walk down memory lane when he accompanied the trophy on a visit to his former junior club – the Redcliffe Dolphins with Gold Coast Titans’ halfback Karli Hansen.

The visit was part of a NRL juniors’ skills clinic.

Morning at Moreton

Earlier in the day, Kerr and former Bronco Sam Thaiday took the trophy to Moreton Island, where they enjoyed a morning at the beach, checking out the Tangalooma wrecks and the famous sand dunes.

Thaiday, a Samford Village local, says he’s pumped to see the NRL trophy go to so many places.

“It gives people the chance and opportunity that wouldn’t necessarily see (the trophy) or touch it or try to pick it up – I think that’s the best thing about the NRL Premiership trophy tour,” he says.

“It’s great to bring a buzz to some of these places.”

Enjoying paradise

Kerr says: “They call it God’s country for a reason up here

“It’s pretty exciting to see the trophy come back to Brisbane… everyone bleeds rugby league so to see it get up here and see all the fans and how passionate they are, it’s awesome to see.

“They’ve done such a great job at letting us up here and playing the rest of our season, and what better way to reward them.”

The trophy is in its second week touring regional Queensland and will travel to Toowoomba, Ipswich, the Gold Coast and Brisbane this week.
