A 48-0 win over Condamine Cods leaves Goondiwindi Emus unbeaten at the top of the table in the Risdon Cup. Goodniwindi also leads B grade, while Chinchilla tops C grade.
The Goondiwindi Emus Rugby Club was formed and commenced playing 1964 as the result of a vision from Mr J.S White and Mr Chuck Younger. They were joined by a group of community supporters, including players and potential players. Most interest at this point of time in the district was of Rugby League, which in fact was a strong hold throughout the Darling Downs.
Since formation, the Emus, as well as having an A Grade, have been fortunate enough to have opportunities for players to be involved in Reserve, C Grade, U19’s and a Women’s XV competition. Vintage caught up with many and a Golden Oldies team, appropriately named the “Feather Dusters” which were formed somewhat 15 years ago.
