Central Queensland school kids will get a taste of NRL glory today.

The Premiership Trophy is stopping at a number of local schools across Rockhampton and Yeppoon on Monday and Tuesday.

Member for Rockhampton Barry O’Rourke says the trophy is spending three-days in the Beef Capital and Yeppoon.

"The Provan-Summons Grand Final trophy is staying in the Rockhampton area until Tuesday for a tour of the city including local schools," Mr O’Rourke.

“I want to thank the NRL for getting more young Central Queenslanders involved in the game’s finals series by visiting schools to captivate students with the Grand Final's ultimate prize.”

Mr O’Rourke says the Provan-Summons trophy would tour the following Yeppoon and Rockhampton schools:

Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School - Yeppoon
Taranganba SS - Yeppoon
St Benedict’s Catholic Primary School - Yeppoon
Allenstown SS - Rockhampton
Rockhampton SS – Rockhampton
Frenchville SS - Rockhampton

The trophy will head to Mackay later this week before travelling back to south-east Queensland.

NRL Chief Executive Andrew Abdo says the trophy tour is a rare opportunity for fans.

“This finals series is more than a Grand Final in Brisbane, it’s a four-week festival celebrating our fans right across Queensland,” Mr Abso says.
