Former[edit]

2005 saw the entry of Hills District and Tugun into what was known as the Mixwell Cup, however these two teams only lasted the season. At the end of 2005, sections of the Queensland Rugby League were keen on Burleigh, Runaway Bay and Tugun returning to the Gold Coast competition to strengthen it. However, the Gold Coast Titans, whose feeder teams are Burleigh, Tweed Heads and Ipswich, wanted Burleigh to remaining in the Mixwell Cup and Tweed Heads to enter in 2006. As a result Burleigh and Tweed were admitted for 2006, however Runaway Bay and Tugun departed.

Wests joint venture with Hills District Panthers, as well as the exit of Runaway Bay and Tugun led to 2 spaces being free for new teams. The Sunshine Coast Falcons successfully applied for one, and see this being a step towards one day being back in the Queensland Wizard Cup, while the other place went to the Aspley Devils, who are now associated with the Brisbane Broncos and are thus renamed the Aspley Broncos for the 2007 competition.
