The Chinchilla Junior Bulldogs are a growing pack, something that makes them the envy of country junior rugby league.
The juniors have added another 40 players to their ranks this season with 191 registered youngsters eager to grow and develop into fine young Bulldogs – ensuring the future success of rugby league in Chinchilla.
Club president Tamara Pitt said while many country junior rugby league clubs were struggling, there were not many that could field two teams for every grade.
“We have 26 or 27 U6s. The numbers are unbelievable. We have 48 U10s,” she said.
“We have a strong club base and it’s a family friendly atmosphere.”
She attributes the large increase in numbers this year to new families in town, as well as the U16s moving from the senior to the junior competition.
“I think it’s very positive,” she said.
The majority of the Junior Bulldogs train Thursday afternoons, with the U14s and U16s training Tuesdays and Thursdays.
The younger grades play in the Western Downs competition, and the U14s and U16s play in the South Burnett competition.
