Suncorp Saturday 26th May
The MRP is thrilled to have the opportunity to take to the field of Suncorp Stadium once again this year.
We extend our gratitude to the St. George Qld Reds for making this money can’t buy opportunity possible for our MRP family once again.
The MRP will showcase the talent and skills of a number of our very own MRP Players, PlayerMentors, Assistant Coaches and Coaches for half time games at the highly-anticipated Reds V Highlanders fixture.
Although we wish we could have each and every MRP division and team across Queensland play under the spotlight, unfortunately this is not possible as unlike last year, in 2018 we only have access to the half time timeslot.
To make the half time team selection process as fair as possible, we made the decision to select MRP Teams, which were either new to the program or had a high number of participants who have not previously had the chance to play at Suncorp across our three MRP divisions – the MRP, MRP 7s and MRP Colts.
If your child has played at Suncorp before, please take the time to explain this change and reinforce how important it is to give others, new to our community, the chance to experience the thrill of playing on the field at Suncorp as they have done in the past.
As we mentioned in Skype last week, every MRP participant will have an on-field experience either:
· heading onto the field and forming the tunnel to run on the St.George Qld Reds and the Highlighlanders
· playing at half time
· handing the post-match water bottles to Reds Players.
Please see below the list of roles for each MRP Team.
