TBRC & UQRFC Form Historic Joint Venture.
UQRFC and TBRC have enjoyed a close and successful relationship for a number of years and have now deepened and formalised arrangements which will see a greater involvement by UQRFC in the junior club. This initiative will see UQ Rugby have a place in Brisbane junior rugby and enable it to directly invest, grow and develop the game at the grass roots level.
UQRFC and TBRC will now be better placed to achieve our shared goals which are to; –
- Increase the participation of girls in rugby
- Strengthen coaching resources at TBRC
- Build a genuine pathway from junior to senior rugby for boys and girls.
TBRC will continue to be administered, play and train at Graceville Memorial Park, be known as the UQ Junior Bull Sharks.
The joint venture will see TBRC change it’s traditional black and gold colours to the maroon and blue of University. There will be a transition period, with U13 and above changing from 2018 and the rest of the club following from 2019. Taylor Bridge has a proud history in Graceville, and a decision to change colours and name is not something we have done lightly. At the end of the day we are still TBRC, we are still based at Graceville, we are still the Bull Sharks, we respect where we have come from and are excited about the future.
