High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The Queensland Cup is the premier rugby league football competition in the State of Queensland, Australia. It is a statewide competition with the majority of teams based in South East Queensland but also including sides based in Cairns, Mackay and Rockhampton. The competition began in 1996 as a replacement for the Winfield State League, and as an accompaniment for the Brisbane Rugby League competition. The Queensland Cup become the premier competition in Queensland in 1998, when the BRL was disbanded. From the early 1920s to the 1970s, the Brisbane Rugby League premiership was the premier competition in the state, and was a thriving success boasting big crowds and large, loyal supporter bases with the respective clubs. Like its NSW counterpart, the clubs were constant, with new teams rarely entering the competition. Traditionally, the clubs were Valleys, Brothers, Norths, Souths, Wests, Easts, Redcliffe and Wynnum-Manly. However, when poker machines were introduced in New South Wales, but not in the Bjelke-Peterson Queensland, the NSWRL's clubs were able to entice Queensland players south of the Tweed with the lure of more money.
