The Brisbane Second Division Rugby League (BRL) is the second division of the Queensland Rugby League South East Queensland Division. The league is based in Brisbane, Australia and features clubs stretching from North Stradbroke Island in the East to Dayboro in the North to Beenleigh in the South.

History

In 1971 the Brisbane Rugby League began a second division competition. This competition was for Under 23 teams in three grades, and was contested by the BRL clubs, University, Teachers and eight "satellite" clubs. By 1977 there were 15 teams competing in Northern and Southern Zones. Since 1981 the Second Division has used Davies Park, West End as its headquarters and finals venue.

There are four teams from 1971 that are still competing in the Second Division: Brighton, St Brendans, Sunnybank and Bulimba Valleys (formerly Valley United Stars). The most successful clubs between 1977 and 2004 have been Carina (12 premierships), Sunnybank (12), St Brendans (10) and Banyo (8).

In 2007 there are 65 teams from 43 clubs playing in five open grade competitions, an Under 22 and an Under 20 competition. In 2006, there were 2575 registered players in the League. The Brisbane Second Division is one of the biggest Rugby League competitions in the world.
