A ‘20th Year Anniversary Team’ commemorating two memorable decades of Queensland’s premier rugby league competition will be unveiled before this season’s Intrust Super Cup grand final.

An experienced panel is poring over names and records to select 17 players and a coach.

Fans are encouraged to join the discussion on our Intrust Super Cup Facebook and Twitter pages by selecting their own players.  

To be eligible for selection, players must have played a minimum of 75 games in the Queensland/Intrust Super Cup (view the full list further below).

Long-serving Cup statistician and panel chairman, Brad Tallon, said there were 308 players who qualified under this criteria.

“There are some incredibly talented players to choose from in this list,” Tallon said.

“Narrowing it down to one single rugby league team is going to be a challenging task, but it’s one that the entire panel is looking forward to over the next few weeks.

“We’ll give strong consideration to players who have provided outstanding service to their clubs and those who have played a pivotal role in team success.” (full criteria listed below)

The prestigious honourary team will be announced in the lead up to the September 27 grand final at Suncorp Stadium.

The selected players will be guests of the QRL on grand final day, where they will take part in the 20th year celebrations alongside Rupert McCall. The internationally-recognised poet has penned a stirring tribute – “Every Sacred Blade of Grass”.
