Rugby League Fans it’s time to get creative! Thanks to our Major Sponsor Mendi Group the Townsville & Districts Mendi Blackhawks have an official Mascot and it needs a name!

Mendi Big Solutions together with The Townsville & District Mendi Blackhawks are delighted to offer the general public the opportunity to officially name the Mendi Blackhawks Mascot. This is your opportunity to become a part of history in the club’s inaugural season.

The mascot is based on what we believe a helicopter would look like if it were a Transformer. The mascot is a one of a kind design based on a sketch from CEO Justin Wilkins nephew. Mendi felt it was important to involve the children in game day and this Mascot with its Transformer-like look is going to be a huge hit with the younger fans.
