THE age division champions of Queensland’s top regional rugby centres will play for the inaugural King of the Country crown in a three-day tournament livestreamed from the Gold Coast on the News Australia network.

Subscribers to the Gold Coast Bulletin, Sunshine Coast Daily, Toowoomba Chronicle, Courier-Mail and Northern Star can catch all 24 matches live on their computers or smartphones.

Subscriptions for the duration of the tournament are available for just $1.

Gold Coast Bulletin sports editor Tom Boswell said he was excited to help young footballers create memories for life at the tournament.

“Being able to sit back at the end of the day and watch yourself playing sport is a really valuable learning tool, and one that not many athletes receive until they are approaching the professional level,” Boswell said.

“Livestreaming every match of the King of the Country tournament will help these memories last a lifetime.

“The Bulletin is proud to play a small role in making that happen, and in broadcasting the footage so even those that can’t make it to the Coast can take part as well.”
