The Mosquitoes will travel to Townsville for two matches in September. A Mosquito XV has not taken to the field since 2013 when they finished 2nd in a 4 team carnival in Adelaide featuring Queensland Country, South Australia and Tasmania.
The team will face a Development XV under lights on Friday 22nd September followed by an afternoon fixture against the Townsville & Districts RU Brolgas on Sunday 24th.
The Brolgas will reciprocate next year, most likely in June with a two match tour of the Top End and play a Presidents XV and the Mosquitoes over a three day period
Peter McGrath has been appointed Head Coach and the announcement of his Assistant Coach and Team Manager is imminent.
Training will commence during the week following the Darwin Grand Final and is sure to include a plethora of players who will represent the Northern Territory for the first time.
