State Titles - IRB holds Broadbeach name high

The IRB team has closed out the QLD season with a significant performance.  The team placed well across many of the events and amassed a points tally that placed them 2nd overall on points.

The result reflects the hard work of the team through the winter season to travel the distances to as far north as Hervey Bay and south to the boarder.  

With one remaining carnival, the "Aussie's" will provide them with a national platform to demonstrate the dedication that is at the core of the club.   Congratulations to the team and particularly those that placed at the Qld. Titles.  Good luck at Aussie's.
