AFL Queensland announced on Tuesday the men’s and women’s squads for the intrastate clash with North Queensland in Cairns next month.
A total of 61 men and 53 women have been named in the squads, hailing from the Darling Downs, Hervey Bay, south-east Queensland and northern NSW.
Final teams of 22 players will be announced closer to the match.
