Coinciding with the Hostplus Cups 2022 Activate Queensland Country Week, the Townsville and Districts Mendi Blackhawks development team have been out in our community visiting regional junior Rugby League clubs and schools.

“We love heading out to the regional clubs in our community,” Nugent said.

“Some of the activities we do with the juniors include development clinics, fun skills and drills as well as coaching updates for the coach’s.”
