ABC TV visits the MRP in Toowoomba


Bright and early on Saturday morning 9 June, Anna Macdonald and her wonderful ABC TV team visited our Modified Rugby (MRP) teams at USQ Saints Rugby Club to learn more about the MRP and to help spread the word about how the MRP is moving more girls, boys and young adults with learning and perceptual disabilities off the sidelines and into the main game!

That morning our Wests Bulldogs MRP 7s teams were also visiting the Club on their first Toowoomba MRP Road trip so it was an exciting time all-round.

Thank you so much to our Official 2017/2018 Partner the Qld Department of Housing and Public Works for the $30,000 Sponsorship to help increase the accessibility of the Modified Rugby Program (MRP) across communities in Toowoomba and Townsville.

And, we would also like to extend our gratitude towards #StGeorgeFoundation for all your ongoing support and Vanderfield for your sponsorship and your awesome BBQ yesterday morning. 

Thanks so much Anna for this wonderful story which aired on Sunday 10 June on ABC Statewide News.
