Feb 21, 2017

February 21, 2017 – Chubb is a Major Partner for the Australian Club Championship at Brisbane’s Crosby Park, on Saturday February 25, 2017.

The Australian Club Championship, between the winners of the Brisbane Premier Rugby and Sydney Shute Shield competitions, has been played regularly since the early 1980s. In 2017 the concept will expand to include the runners-up from both competitions, such that all four 2016 Grand Finalists will be playing on the same day.

Brothers Rugby Club will compete against Northern Suburbs Rugby Club for the Bernie Power Trophy, while traditional rivals University of Queensland and Sydney University will play the curtain raiser. Furthermore, the Queensland Reds U20 versus Melbourne Rebels U20 game will feature as an additional highlight on the day.

Fox Sports will televise both main games live as the lead in to the Super Rugby match between the NSW Waratahs and Western Force that evening.

The Australian Club Championship promises to be one of the largest club rugby days in Australia for many years and an overwhelmingly positive celebration of the club game.

John French, Chubb Country President for Australia and New Zealand, said: “Chubb is delighted to be a Major Partner of the Australian Club Championships. Teamwork, precision and excellence in execution are hallmarks of Chubb and qualities that have helped Brothers and Northern Suburbs reach the pinnacle of club rugby. We look forward to seeing them contest the Bernie Power Trophy on 25 February."

Hans Pearson, Brothers President, said: “Brothers Rugby Club welcomes Chubb’s significant involvement in such an important showcase event for Australian Club Rugby and acknowledges Chubb’s strong interest in community rugby. We encourage all followers of the grassroots game to support Chubb for their participation."
