The Ipswich Junior Rugby League is situated on Brisbane’s western fringe, and is one third of the new South East Queensland Division of the Queensland Rugby League.
Ipswich is a traditional home to Rugby League in Queensland and boasts many former greats of the game. Our name – Ipswich Junior Diggers – & Logo pay tribute to the Ipswich region’s proud history as a coal mining centre.

Our 8 city based clubs boast a great mix of new clubs as Brisbane’s population moves west, & the old traditional clubs (Springfield, Redbank Plains, Karalee, Swifts, Goodna, West End, Northern Suburbs, & Brothers). The remaining five clubs are based in rural communities, Brisbane Valley in Esk, Lowood – Tarampa, Laidley, Rosewood, & Fassifern in Harrisville.
