    Dear Stewbum,

    It's footy finals season, and the wooden spoon is up for grabs for the worst club in Queensland!

    We need your vote in Week 1 of the Semis to see who’ll go head-to-head in the decider.

    It’s been a big year for dodgy clubs in the Sunshine State – from penalty rate cuts to intimidation tactics & unpaid staff super - but some clubs have stood head-and-shoulders above the rest when it comes to foul play.

    In this week’s semi-final series, the always disappointing Wynnum-Manly Leagues Club clash with hot-favourites for the spoon, Club Beenleigh.

    Both clubs started the season as underdogs … saying there was no plan to cut weekend pay for their workers.

    Turns out – Clubs Australia were planning on doing just that and now Wynnum-Manly and Club Beenleigh are at the top of the ladder!

    Who Deserves to Play for the Spoon?

    Cast your vote now.

    Wynnum-Manly Leagues had an appalling year, which serves them well in the semis. They won't lock in Penalty Rates for their players, they've used underhanded tactics - bullying, harassment and intimidation - all season & what’s more, they booted elderly community members out of their club when they politely asked the club to commit to paying penalty rates to players. Low blow!

    Club Beenleigh comes to the finals as a favourite to take out this year’s title. Team scandals have plagued the club all season with club management underpaying superannuation, running bullying, harassment & intimidation plays and claiming they'll keep penalty rates while wanting to cut leave loading for workers. Sin-bin!

    Which club deserves to go through to the Grand Final of Queensland’s Worst Club?

    Vote now

    Wynnum for mine.... and thats purely for poaching the King back at the end of '83 and never paying him!! At least Valleys were honest and told him they couldnt afford him!!

    Norths stealing Gary Seaton off Wynnum then Wynnum stealing him back off Norths. Unforgivable.

    Colin Scott off Easts. How dare they. Colin had a great season as a Tiger. Instead of playing in the 82 GF he could've played in the 83 one.

    Possibly Easts dropping him to Reserve Grade in 1980 when he was the incumbent Queensland fullback may have encouraged his decision to leave.

    The truth is that Scott, Miles and others were all coming to Easts from Townsville in 1980 to be coached by Des Morris. When Easts sacked Morris, they all reneged except Scott and then all joined Des Morris at Wynnum the following year.

    Easts could have been the super team of the 1980s if not for a few poor decisions.

    Easts could have been the super team of the 90's, 00's and 10's except for a few poor decisions!! Hahaha...... for the amount of $$$ they have forked out, they have won 1 premiership since 1984!! Talk about getting value for money!
