Results of the Foley Shield finals from 1948.
All finals were played in Townsville at the Sposts Reserve until 1993. In 1994 and 1995 the showpiece of North Queensland Rugby League, the Foley Shield final, was played in Mackay. The Foley Shield competition ended in 1995 only to be re-established in 2000, albeit with only four teams. In 2004 this was reduced to three teams with the withdrawal of Mt Isa, leaving Mackay, Townsville and Cairns to fight out the title.
