Central Queensland hold the key on the final day

UNION: All three regions can still win the Queensland Country Rugby Union championships, leading into the final day of the competition today.

After an enthralling two days so far the game this afternoon between South Queensland and Central Queensland will decide who wins the championship.

And all South Queensland needs to do is win after beating North Queensland 20-12 on Friday night.

A victory would hand them an unbeaten campaign and a third straight championship.

For the other sides the task is a little bit tougher.

North Queensland, after beating Central Queensland last night 63-7, will be relying on CQ to win against South Queensland by a small margin to seal the title.

A CQ win would hand them the title on a better for and against compared to the other two sides who would join NQ on one win each in the competition.

If Central Queensland is to win then they need to beat South Queensland by a large margin.

After its big loss to North Queensland the side needs to win by 105 points or more to claim the crown.

An open championship win by South Queensland would wrap up a perfect weekend after its under-19 side claimed the U19 title earlier this morning.

The side defeated North Queensland 33-7 to win the championship after beating Central Queensland 47-17.

The final game of the championships is on at 12pm with tickets still available at $5 for adults and free for kids under the age of 12.
