30 Jun 2023 to 1 Jul 2023 Annual Event

The 2023 Laurie Spina Shield is a 2-day rugby league carnival coordinated by the North Queensland Toyota Cowboys and open to players under 11 years of age, with a focus on participation, fair play and enjoying the ‘greatest game of all.’

The shield was established in 1997 and is named after the Cowboys inaugural captain Laurie Spina. Laurie played his junior rugby league in the Herbert River district, playing 169 NRL games for North Sydney Bears (1983-84), Sydney Roosters (1985-89), Cronulla Sharks (1990) and North Queensland Cowboys (1995).

Laurie has also been a tireless contributor to the development of the junior rugby league in North Queensland. In recognition of his efforts and achievements, a shield is presented in his honour.
