Can I Play For RLSQ And Another QPICC Nation In 1 Year?

No. RLSQ and other QPICC nations encourage, promote and stipulate that players commit to 1 nation.

If a player is of multiple ancestral backgrounds (eg. 1/2 Samoan and 1/2 Tongan or 1/2 Samoan, 1/4 Tongan and 1/2 Cook Island), that player must commit to 1 nation for that year.

The player can select the other Nation the following year.  

Players have to prove their ancestral connection from starting from their grandparents. 

How Much Is The Levy for 2024?

Due to current financial climate we estimate costs to be between $160-$220 per player.

There will be an EARLY BIRD SPECIAL for Levy.


Confirmation will be provided by April.

What Does The Levy Cover?

The levy covers ALL Uniforms: 

Playing kit, Training kit and Regional Polo Shirt

The levy also helps toward the off-field costs:

Insurance. Strapping tape and snacks for players at the Q Legal Carnival and QPICC. 

Are Players Covered By Insurance?

YesRLSQ is sanctioned by the QRL and players are covered by A.J Gallagher.

1. Players MUST BE REGISTERED WITH a QRL affiliated Club.

2. If players ARE NOT REGISTERED WITH a Club, insurance fee ($60) will be added to their levy.

The RLSQ insurance cover is the same as all current QRL clubs in a QRL competition.  

Will There Be Added Costs?


In 2024 - RLSQ teams will travel to NSW to play in the Annual 'Samoan State Challenge' Players will be required to pay for the travel and accommodation.

The RLSQ Exec Team will inform families if there are added costs. 

All added costs will be only to support players. 

Can I Get A Refund?



Once RLSQ have ordered the apparel, refunds are ONLY available pending each individual case under strict conditions.  


If the Queensland or Australian governments cancel sporting events or gatherings that do not allow for ALL families to attend due to Covid related concerns or weather does not allow the carnival to continue, this is out of RLSQ control and we cannot refund players. 

When Does The Season Start?

In 2024, registration will commence before regional team sessions in mid-JUNE.


RLSQ holds games at the end of the regular QRL club season.


Traditionally we play throughout October with the last weekend ending at the Queensland Pacific Island Cultural Carnival.
