Lions roar at Tassell Trophy Challenge

Author : Cameron Stallard QRL content producer

It was a successful weekend out for the Western Lions, taking home both Tassell Trophies at the annual Under 14 carnival held in Far North Queensland recently.

The Townsville-based club dominated both the boys and girls age groups and is the first to claim both Tassell Trophy Carnival championships in the same year.

Teams travelled from as far afield as Moranbah to the south, Mount Isa to the west and Weipa to the north to compete in the iconic event played annually since 2001.

The carnival is also used as a referees development camp with match officials from throughout North Queensland officiating at the carnival.

Interest in the female participation continues to grow with four female teams competing for the Sandy Tassell Trophy this year.
