The Bulimba Cup was a rugby league round-robin competition between Queensland teams from Brisbane, Ipswich and Toowoomba. It commenced in 1925 and was discontinued in 1973. Duncan Hall, a tough-as-nails prop forward who played for Australia on the 1948-49 kangaroo tour of England was captain of the Toowoomba team when it won the Bulimba Cup in 1952 and in the same year he was selected for the kangaroo tour. He went on to an outstanding career with other clubs as a player and coach. He co-managed the 1977 Australian World Cup team and the first Queensland Origin team. He was awarded the Australian Sports Medal in 2000 and in 2007 was admitted to the ARL Hall of Fame. In that same year the Duncan Hall Medal was established for the best player in the Queensland Cup grand final.
