The Queensland Cup is the top level of rugby league football in Queensland, Australia. The competition, called the Intrust Super Cup (due to sponsorship from Intrust Super) is contested by twelve teams, eleven of which are located in Queensland and one in New South Wales.
The Queensland Cup is the present-day embodiment of Queensland's top-level club competition. This replaced the Winfield State League in 1996 and accompanied the Brisbane Rugby League (BRL), before becoming the premier competition in 1998 following the disbandoning of the BRL.
Famous quotes containing the word cup:
“Sunday morning may be cheery enough, with its extra cup of coffee and litter of Sunday newspapers, but there is always hanging over it the ominous threat of 3 P.M., when the sun gets around to the back windows and life stops dead in its tracks.”
—Robert Benchley (18891945)
