Capalaba and Jimboomba might be 50 kilometres apart but that did not stop the rugby league clubs from each city joining forces to take part in the girls' under 16 competition this year.
More incredible than the commitment to travelling more than 45 minutes to and from games throughout the season was that the team, made up of 11 players from Capalaba and four from Jimboomba, capped off a season that almost never was with a premiership.
Capalaba Warriors girls co-ordinator Amy Seeto said the club's under 16 coach approached Jimboomba to confirm a temporary merger after seeing a Facebook post that showed the club were struggling to fill their girls' teams.
While the players from each region did not train together, Seeto said they shared a tight bond on game day.
"The girls had an online group chat which they communicated on during the week," she said.
"I think (they gelled) because they're so friendly and outgoing. They get along with anyone."
Seeto said Capalaba fought a yearly battle with filling their girls' teams and were often forced to combine with clubs from other areas.
"The majority of girls in the Redlands play other sports like netball or softball, not many play league," she said.
"I think a lot of them don't know that there is league for older girls as well. We need to get it out there that there are girls' teams in the Redlands.
"You've got Logan, Beenleigh and Beaudesert - they all have huge numbers while we're struggling to get 13 on a side.
"That's why we need to push it because a lot of them do make the move to those teams."
Seeto said the sport had helped trouble teens get their lives back on track.
"When they started playing league they changed their ways. Their parents saw big differences in them."
The team, who wore Capalaba Warriors jerseys on game days with socks and shorts from their own club, defeated West Arana Hills 24-16 in the grand final at Langlands Park.
