Ms BUTLER (Griffith) (13:52): I rise to inform the House of three very important events that happened in Griffith on the weekend. The first was the grand final of the QAFL in which the Morningside Panthers defeated the Labrador Tigers, 22-17-149 to 15-6-96. I was privileged to be able to attend the game and cheer on the 'Siders' in what was an amazing game where we saw great mastery of our sport.

The next very important event that I want to mention was the Second Division Rugby League grand final. The Bulimba Valleys Bulldogs, known as the 'Doggies', had won the premiership in 2009, 2012 and 2013 and they were hoping to back up yet again. They did not disappoint. Bulimba Valleys, the Doggies—Brian Dart's team—defeated Redlands 26 to 6. Another great victory for the Doggies. Up the Doggies!

Finally I want to mention the QW AFL grand final. The Queensland Women's AFL grand final was held and Coorparoo, the Navy Roos, beat Zillmere 7-8 50 2-5 17. They beat them 50 to 17. That was a backup of last year's, so they are premiers two years in a row. What a fantastic weekend of sport we had in Griffith. It was immensely heart warming to me to have such great local football teams, in two different codes, having such wonderful victories.
