LIVIN Charity Shield | Sunday November 29th | Sign Up Today!

2020 LIVIN Charity Shield
The annual Kick It Charity Shield returns in November with LIVIN and mental health as the focus.

Our partnership with LIVIN started back in 2016 as a way to bring the community together and highlight the stigmas and barriers associated with mental health and depression among young people.

We were fortunate enough to be joined by the majority of the Brisbane Broncos to help ram home the message that “nobody suffers in silence”.

Five years on and the mental health is more important than ever, in particular in light of COVID-19.

1 in 5 Australians will be affected by mental health issues at some point in their lives. That number could realistically be 1 in 4 after a tough 2020.

The young Australians affected by depression and health issues aren’t always men. Women are just as susceptible.

1 in 6 women in Australia are impacted by mental health issues during the lifetime. Its time to make a stand!

So what exactly can we do? 
We can create awareness of the issue and bring the greater community together to celebrate something we all love; touch footy.

We can raise vital funds for the education programs towards mental health and depression.

We can create a strong community focus that nobody suffers alone. #itaintweaktospeak

Players who take the field on Sunday, November 29th are encouraged to look around and just think that on average two players in every team have been affected by hardship.

North Brisbane Sharks Sweep 2020 Rep Cup

2020 REP CUP - NORTH BRISBANE SHARKS
The North Brisbane Sharks have claimed their second Rep Cup clean sweep after defeating the Toowoomba Giants in the final on Sunday.

The win marks the second time the Sharks mens team has taken out the top honour, while the mixed secured its third.

Heading into the finals as underdogs against the reigning champions, the Sharks’ strong middle men came to the fore.

The prolific try scoring threats in both mens and mixed turned it on off the back of the momentum driven by the middles.

Ballerz’ Jake Coolwell and Adriano Gaile combined for the Shark’s two crucial second half tries to get the mixed side home against a frantic Toowoomba outfit 4-3.

Sharks captain Jess Sleep crossed for her side’s only points of the first half from a Jake Coolwell grubber.

Giants’ player of the match Allan Cooper got his side on the board with a first half double, while danger-man Kevin Platz pushed his side ahead early after half time.

A controversial, but correct try ruling to Adriano Gaile off a grubber from Jason West six minutes from time sealed the famous win.

2020 Rep Cup Mixed full match replay.


The Sharks mens team has won their first Rep Cup title since 2012 with an emphatic 5-1 win over the Giants.

Leading Stafford try scorers Corey Pocock and Jesse Ripley starred with four tries, while 2012 champion Tyrone Lockrey notched up one of his own.

The Sharks mens win is their first over the Giants (formally the Titans).

Boasting a team of familiar faces, the Giants had the ascendancy early with a heavy dose of rucking and key field position.

Roderick Robertson crossed for his side’s first and only points with a beautiful show and go to beat two Sharks’ defenders.

The Brisbane outfit started to win the field position battle and their dangermen came into the game.

Corey Pocock scooted 20m down the right sideline to score the Sharks’ first points, while Jesse Ripley dived over in the same corner from a lovely ball from Jai Lockrey.

Signs of wear and tear started to show with stars Chris Chan and Roderick Robertson succumbing to injury, while captain Ben Burstow battled through a number of niggles.

A walk over try from Tyrone Lockrey minutes before halftime produced an overstated scoreline at the break as the Giants scrambled to maintain seven players on the field.

Some tremendous fortitude and determination willed the talented Toowoomba side on early in the second half.

As they fell back to their default of rucking and tight defence, the Sharks were afforded little opportunity.

Without subs, the toll began to show as the game started to break up mid-way through the second half.

A rare opportunity gifted try-scoring threat Jessie Ripley his second to break the backs of the gallant Giants side.

Corey Pocock would chase a 20m grubber shortly area to ice the victory as plenty of Toowoomba players hobbled off the field.

Well done to the Sharks Mens side defeating the Giants 5-1 and ending their three-year reign at the top. Hold your heads up high Toowoomba!

Rep Cup 2020
The teams for the 2020 Representative Cup are locked in on the eve of the annual event.

The Toowoomba Giants (formally the Titans) will look to defend their mens and mixed title from a year ago.

Join us from 10am at Sunday at Taringa for to Kick It Touch Football Rep Cup!

North Brisbane Sharks

The Sharks have made a host of forced changes due to injuries.

Former Tiger Jason West comes into the mixed team, along with Ben Hayes as the pair look to take advantage of their Joeys and Ballerz combinations.

Also in is 2018 Shark James Arundel, replacing Carseldine teammate Shaun Rees.

The Sharks mens side have made just one change with victorious 2012 Shark Tyrone Lockrey coming in for Dean Saxvik.

Key players: Corey Pocock (mens), Chloe Storm (mixed).

You can’t teach speed and these two have it in spades.

Look for them to represent the Sharks in the fastest man/woman in Kick It races and finish in the top 2.

Also, look for their speed to show up on game day with the duo regularly topping the individual try leaderboard for their seasonal teams.

Both Pocock and Storm have the ability to blow a game wide open.

Where it will be won:

The Sharks mens side boasts 9 players from the top three mens teams.

They will use tempo and quick rucks to get the defence retreating to create space for their outside men.

Critical to the middle is captain Matthew Allen, LGMs leader Jackson Paton and P-Dub’s link-man Bill Chisholm.

If these guys play well, the speed-men on the outside will have a field day.

The same can be said for the mixed team. Expect them to play tight through the middle with the girls to capitalise when attacking inside the opposition’s red zone.

All of the Sharks girls can play in the middle. Not only do they ruck, but they can also put on points.

Sharks Mixed. Rep Cup 2020

Brisbane Tigers

The Tigers mens side has made one forced changed with Next-Gen Untouchables front-man Matt McIver succumbing to a shoulder injury.

Rampage’s Ben Schofield comes into the side in jersey no.11.

The Tigers mixed team has two new faces in former Blues representative Colby Altman and former Shark Dan Ebert getting the nod.

Kirk Barber and Ethan Menchin both miss out due to ankle injuries.

Key Players: Eliza Mooney (mixed), Aaron Fraser (mens).

Reigning Taringa and Stafford top try scorer Eliza Mooney will have plenty to do if the Tigers gasp the shield in this year’s tournament.

Together with key middles Tim Mitchell and Dan Ebert, the trio will need to set the pace for their quicker outside men and zippy girls.

Expect to see Eliza’s name on the scoresheet if the Tigers run up a score.

The Tigers mens team has a much more balanced contingent compared to that of 2019.

Boasting a number of middle men and stout defenders, expect to see the boys in black dominate the middle third of the field.

2012 Sharks star Aaron Fraser makes his return to the Kick It Rep scene and is a key man.

He will be the link between the middles and outside men with a host of crafty plays and sight of hand.

Tigers Mixed - Rep 2020 Tigers Mens - Rep 2020

Toowoomba Storm

Coming in short in last years rep day, Storm Men’s have a new and improved quad ready to take out the competition!

Storm are loaded up with speed, agility and experience.

Our speed men, Nathan, Brandon and Justin are in their primes when it comes to putting points on the board!

When in comes to experience and knowledge, Josh, Locky and Marky know how to dismantle the opposition and find the opportunities to dominate!

A team is nothing without a impactful bench and impactful they are.

This team run by their captain Marty are here to make and imprint on the game and are looking to take out the competition in straight sets.

#Stormsbrewing
Martin Baldo – Mens Storm captain.

Where it will be won: Locky Stephson.

When an opportunity presents itself, Locky Stephson will be the one to take the right open.

Two years removed from of the best Rep day performances by an individual, he will look to showcase his skills at this year’s event.

Watch his speed and all-round skill to show up on field and on camera.

The Storm need a big performance from their key man in hopes to improve on last year’s fourth placing.

Toowoomba Giants

Three years ago the Toowoomba Titans men’s side turned up at the Kickit Rep day for the first time.

That day was the highlight of all my years playing kick It.

After 3 very close, 1 point wins, this group of guys who had known each other for years as fierce rivals found themselves 3 tries behind at halftime in the rep day grand final.

I remember the half time body language. It was game faces on and a strong “we aren’t beaten yet” vibe.

We got those three points back and won it in extra time.

I turned some rivals into mates that day and held up a trophy with my brother at the end.

The guys go back to being rivals all year round until this one day a year when we come back together and play for a team that now mean a lot to all of us.

This year we are “The Giants”. There are some new faces but rest assured the Titans are there and the new guys know what shoes they’re stepping into.

This is a group of guys that know how to get a game won and a great group of mates who love playing for one another.

I reckon we’ve got another one in us.
Ben Burstow (Giants Mens Captain).

Where it will be won: Kevin Platz (mixed), Isaac Parker (mens)

It comes as no surprise that the key men for both Giants teams are the middle men.

Two years ago, Kevin Platz tore all his opponents to shreds as he was the mixed player of the tournament.

Agility and a crisp passing game went unmatched. That could be the case in this year’s tournament.

Isaac Parker is a quiet achiever but has a knack for doing all the dirty work in the middle and often comes up with a try.

Look no further than last year’s State of Origin where he almost got the Blues across the line in a spirited second half performance.

If the Giants make the final, expect Isaac’s fingerprints to be on the game plan.

Superb Starting Season As Carseldine Grows

Carseldine Winter 2020
The fields at Carseldine lit up with Kick It Touch Footy for the first time since late 2018 and the start of the Queensland Government’s Urban Village project.

Our Monday night competition showcased some outstanding talent while epitomising the fun and social atmosphere at our venues

In the mixed competition, The Boodz took out a hotly competitive final defeating Troopers 7-6.

Despite notching up the first points to Denzel English, it was Troopers who raced to an early 3-1 lead.

Migally Shaw crossed off a crisp cut-out ball from Ryan Harris, while Chloe Storm extended her side’s lead just minutes later.

With the momentum firmly with Troopers, it took multiple repeat sets and a slicing run from Kieran English to stop the rot.

Mya Brown crossed for a two pointer on the stroke of halftime to see The Boodz take a 4-3 lead at the break.

As both teams returned to the field, there was a sense the match would go down to the wire.

We weren’t short changed in attack as the defensive lines of both sides began to crack.

Jason West got his side on the board first to level the scores at 4-4.

The Boodz hit back in a strong four-minute burst that featured tries to Rhikki Nanu and a second to Kieran English.

The reply was swift as Rep star Corey Pocock latching onto a long-range grubber to score.

Boodz captain and North Brisbane Sharks Representative Shaun Rees jumped over for his first in the dying stages.

Troopers general Clint Wicks notched up a late consolation try to bridge the gap, but it wasn’t enough.

Well done to The Boodz winning 7-6 in the Carseldine mixed grand final.

A battle of the two heavy weights, top of the table SFX took on Deep Water Bender Boys in a competitive mens final on Monday.

The Carseldine foes re-ignited their rivalry with SFX claiming victory in the two previous fixtures between the two teams.

Player of the Match Michael Molo got his side’s first points as he glided through some broken defence.

A staple of both offences was on show as both teams traded a series of ruck and splits when attacking their opponent’s goal line.

Deep Water Bender Boys found some space as Issac Luke dived over untouched to make it 2-0.

SFX were their own worst enemy with a host of missed attacking chances and unforced errors.

Despite playing with just seven players and no subs, the Bender Boys soaked up the momentum and field possession. It eventually came to an end.

SFX Youngster James got his side on the board as he chased a sharp kick.

The hit back was swift with Deep Water captain Clinton Kerei notching up his side’s third try leading into half time.

The second half started the same as the first with Michael Molo crossing for his second try to extend the lead to 4-1.

Some exciting end to end footy saw both teams with try scoring chances as time ticked away.

A much improved and simplified attack from SFX proved fruitful with Michael diving over for his first try of the match.

Deep Water Bender Boys responded in kind with a try of their own to ice the popular win.

Ballerz, P-Dub succeed in 2020 Stafford Winter Season

Stafford Winter Season
Stafford Mixed

Ballerz have won their third mixed division title in a row with a hard fought 7-4 win over One Kick Wonders on Wednesday.

The experience of the Ballerz’ core group of players proved the difference as they overcame a fast-start by One Kick Wonder’s Rep players.

Corey Pocock starred for his green and white team as he crossed for three tries, including the first inside the opening five minutes.

Newly crowned Sharks Rep player Mason Hasselmeyer also proved pivotal in the middle as a link man in attack.

The onslaught was quickly nullified with two quick tries to Sharks Mens coach Ben Hayes.

The return of former Rep captain Jess Sleep helped sure up the middle and gift Hayes his second try in three minutes with a spilt on the goal line.

They extended their lead shortly after with Ballerz captain Jake Coolwell crossing to end the half.

The momentum remained with the reigning champions to start the half with Coolwell setting up Zac Jane for his first try.

Pocock nabbed his third try in a swift hit back on a long-range grubber to himself.

As both teams began to show signs of fatigue, a critical professional foul penalty was awarded Ballerz way after Ben Hayes was contacted in a try scoring situation.

The call would result in One Kick Wonders playing a man down for five sets.

Despite the disadvantage, the challengers would remain strong and withstand Ballerz’ first attacking set.

The six-player attack of One Kick Wonders would force a surprise repeat set to soak up some time with the ball.

A poor end of set gifted Ballerz with great field position and some momentum as they capitalised through Jeff O’Connor to extend their side’s lead to 5-3.

The return to seven players on the field saw Corey Pocock spring to life as he sent Mason Hasselmeyer over for his first points.

Jake Coolwell quickly hit back before Jeff O’Conner crossed for his second in the dying stages to ice the win.

Stafford Mens – Division 1

P-Dub have overcome long-time rivals Joeys in a fast-paced Mens final.

Sharks Rep speedster Sam Gadsby broke the game wide open inside the first five minutes with a try and an assist to set up Luke Murray.

The red-hot P-Dub side would extend their lead to three at the 10-minute mark through Gadsby to open up Joeys biggest deficit of the season.

The head-strong boys in purple bounced back through Matthew Allen after some honest words in the moments leading up to it.

Rookie Matt Beard crossed for Joeys second to breath new life into the contest as half time approached.

Prolific try scorer Kyle Foxwell pounced on a short kick to take P-Dub to a 4-2 lead heading into the break.

With both teams constricted in a tight huddle, the match was set up for one of the most competitive second halves to date.

Corey Pocock broke the shackles with a long range grubber to bring the scores to within one.

Some wild end-to-end footy ensured with a battle for the ruck and field possession.

Two-time Rep player Matt O’Brien hit back with a try of his own, before Luke Murray jumped on a fortuitous bounce in the in-goal for P-Dub to scoot out to a 6-3 lead.

Pocock brought the game to within two points with his second try as time became the enemy.

With both teams out on their feet, P-Dub sealed a momentous victory as time elapsed to claim their seventh mens title.
