queanbeyan kangaroo rugby league football club
In 1966 a meeting was held in Walsh’s hotel in the hope of forming a new football club to take part in the Molonglo shield competition. At this meeting it was decided to form a breakaway club which would cater for the excess players wanting to play rugby league who were constantly unable to make the current Queanbeyan Rugby League team. It was decided that this new club would affiliate with group 8 which meant that the current Queanbeyan side couldn’t call on this “new” side’s players.
The Roos first colours were Royal Blue Guernseys with a White Kangaroo and in 1968 the colours were changed to Maroon & White.
First Committee in 1966 - J Walsh, S Clarke, T Matthews, B Lovelock, P Sutton, L Brown, D McRitchie, R Carr, J Conroy, K Elliott, J Matthews, J Warner
The club went on to win 1st grade competitions in 1967 under John Carruthers, 1969, 70, 71, Bill Sullivan, 1983 Wayne Brownlie, 1985 Peter Elliott, 2010, 11 and 13 under Aaron Gorrell.
