Bulimba Cup

The Bulimba Cup was a representative rugby league football competition contested by the Brisbane, Ipswich and Toowoomba rugby league sides. In 1931, a team from Lismore participated. It was first contested in 1925 but was cancelled in 1972 due to waning public interest.

The competition was normally played as a round-robin with each team playing each other twice. On the rare occasions when teams finished evenly at the conclusion of 6 games, a playoff was held to determine the winner. From 1969 onwards, a final was held.

In 2005 the Queensland Rugby League issued a commemorative jersey to celebrate the 80th anniversary of this competition.

Famous quotes containing the word cup:

    I write mainly for the kindly race of women. I am their sister, and in no way exempt from their sorrowful lot. I have drank [sic] the cup of their limitations to the dregs, and if my experience can help any sad or doubtful woman to outleap her own shadow, and to stand bravely out in the sunshine to meet her destiny, whatever it may be, I shall have done well; I have not written this book in vain.
    Amelia E. Barr (1831–1919)
