Some of the 51 CQUniversity students who will compete at the Australian University Games on the Gold Coast this weekend.

A total of 51 students will represent CQUniversity at the Australian University Games on the Gold Coast next week (Sept 27-Oct 2).

The CQUni team will be co-captained by one of Australia's leading discus throwers, Taryn Gollshewsky, and men's touch player Jackson Hughes.

CQUniversity will be represented in Athletics, Rugby Sevens, Men's Touch, Mixed Touch and (with a strong international student contingent) the T20 Cricket.

The Rugby Sevens team is a strong contender thanks to participation by Queensland Country reps Lachlan Brown-Bates and Brandon Fourie.

The Rugby 7 Sevens team have been provided with a full jersey kit out thanks to University Rugby Union President, Rupert Collins.

All competitors have been proudly supported by the Student Representative Council.

CQUniversity's team is managed by Jana Paris with assistance from Emma Henley.

"Team supporters who deserve acknowledgement include Rupert Collins, Steve Anderson and Associate Professor Peter Reaburn," Ms Paris says.
