The Brisbane Flames have won the 2010 Under 16 Youth Girls State Championships held in Cairns over the weekend.

With the competition increasing from 4 teams to 6 teams in 2010, this was one of the closest competitions in the 5 year history of the Championships.

Brisbane went through the competition undefeated but not without good pressure from locals the North Queensland Lions and also international entrants Papua New Guinea Kurukums.  Leading into the last day of competition North Qld and Brisbane were both undefeated and PNG following closely with a narrow 4 point loss to Nth Qld. 

Unfortunately for PNG, their 19 player tour party suffered a few injuries and left the team depleted and unable to challenge the inform Brisbane in the last game of the weekend going down 7.4.48 to 1.0.6.

In 2010, former team entrant South-East Queensland Flames was divided into a Brisbane and Sunshine coast team and also a Gold Coast, Northern Rivers and Darling Downs team.  A combination of Mackay, Capricornia and Wide Bay regions made up the Central Coast Cobras whom under coach and AFL Qld Wide Bay Development Manager, Rob Searle performed solidly for their first time in the competition finishing 4th.

At the conclusion of the competition, an All-Stars team was named highlighting the most consistent and best players from each team.
