South Burnett league to expand in 2019

THE South Burnett rugby league A-grade competition could have a new look next season.

President of South Burnett rugby league, Greg Pomfret has confirmed that teams from outside the region are interested in joining the league.

"There are teams from three different competitions that have expressed interest in joining our competition,” he said.

"My whole aim is to make rugby league stronger and I am talking to possibly three other areas to strengthen our competition.”

With the Wondai Wolves set to be competitive next season with the town rallying around the club there is the potential the South Burnett league will be contested by up to nine teams in 2019.

Pomfret has rejected the idea of forming a South Burnett A-grade representative side.

"It is something that is never far from any conversation but unless the numbers are there you are destroying your own competition,” he said.

"I would like to see the South Burnett have a team in a higher competition but not at the detriment of the local competition.”

The South Burnett under-18 side will continue to play in the Toowoomba competition next season.
