Intrust Super Cup Draw – 2014

QRL Media

AN opening round grand final replay, Papua New Guinea’s maiden Intrust Super Cup appearance against heavyweights Redcliffe and key rounds that focus on tradition, country rugby league and player welfare are among the key features of the 2014 draw.

The new 13-team competition kicks off on the weekend of March 1-2, with much of the early anticipation swirling around defending premiers Mackay Cutters and competition newcomers PNG.

The Cutters will launch their premiership defence against grand final foe the Easts Tigers in Mackay on the same weekend that will see PNG make its historic debut in the Channel 9 match-of-the-round at Redcliffe’s Dolphin Oval.

Excitement surrounding the opening round will be further enhanced by four more bumper matches. Norths play Ipswich, Burleigh take on the Central Queensland Capras, the Northern Pride clash with the Sunshine Coast and Wynnum Manly meet Tweed Heads in the battle of the Seagulls. The Souths Logan Magpies have the bye.

Round 2 will be highlighted by PNG’s first match on home soil against the Cutters in Kokopo and all teams travelling to PNG will have a bye in the following round.

QRL Competitions Manager Jamie O’Connor said this was one of the many factors addressed when compiling the draw and following strong consultation with the clubs; shared facilities and the unavailability of grounds also came up as significant issues.

“After carefully considering a range of factors, we structured the draw this way to provide clubs and players with additional time to recover from the extra travel to PNG,” O’Connor said.

“Like all genuine rugby league supporters, we’re delighted to have Papua New Guinea in the Intrust Super Cup next year,” he said. “They will light up the competition and provide an element of surprise.

“The foundations for another captivating season have been set by our 12 existing clubs in conjunction with the continued support of the QRL’s major partners, including Intrust Super, XXXX and Channel 9.

“Channel 9’s excellent coverage has added a new dimension to the competition over the past two seasons. Fans can again look forward to watching a live match every Sunday afternoon and we are also pleased to confirm that our three regional clubs – Mackay Cutters, Central Queensland Capras and the Northern Pride – will each host a live television match during the regular season.

Although the QRL are not yet in a position to broadcast matches from PNG, negotiations are continuing with the hope of progress being made in this area soon.

The 2014 season will be played over 26 rounds with the top five teams to contest the finals series commencing on the weekend of September 6-7.

There will be a further two weeks of finals matches before the Intrust Super Cup grand final on Sunday, September 28.

The Intrust Super Cup premiers will meet the New South Wales Cup champions in the inaugural National Final at Sydney’s ANZ Stadium on October 5 on NRL grand final day.

In Round 23, the focus will be on rugby league in the ‘bush’ with the majority of games shifting to regional Queensland as part of Country Week.

“We’re thrilled to provide fans in country areas with the opportunity to watch top class rugby league in their own backyard,” O’Connor said.

“Preliminary planning is underway and we hope to soon be in a position to lock in the venues for the 2014 Country Week matches.”

On the first weekend in May, rugby league’s rich history will be showcased during the XXXX Rivalry Round.

Traditional and newly-formed rivalries will resume in Round 10, which includes the blockbuster between Bayside powerhouses the Wynnum Manly Seagulls and Redcliffe Dolphins.

“The XXXX Rivalry Round has been an exciting addition to the competition over the past two seasons and we are again looking forward to seeing what these matches produce,” O’Connor said.

“Although the rugby league landscape continues to evolve, it is important that we pause to recognise the game’s wonderful heritage and the past achievements of our clubs, players, coaches, officials and volunteers.”

While this rivalry and passion forms the very fabric of the game, it’s vitally important that the welfare of participants isn’t forgotten in the week-to-week competitiveness that rugby league brings.

With that in mind, the Turn to Me Round is poised to return with an even bigger presence next year.

With support from a number of key individuals – including Ipswich Jets club official Steven Johnson and former NRL players and recently retired Dolphins Petero Civoniceva and Isaak Ah Mau – the QRL launched the inaugural Turn to Me Round in partnership with beyondblue last season.

O’Connor said everyone involved in rugby league should be proud of the initiative, which aims to increase awareness about depression.

“Our aim is to grow this campaign and program by providing additional education for our participants,” O’Connor said.

“The initial feedback and media exposure it generated in its formative stage really was quite extraordinary. It has provided a great platform for us to build on once we set the date for the 2014 Turn to Me Round.”
