2009 was the second competitive season for the Cairns based CRGT Northern Pride Rugby League Football Club. They competed in the QRL state competition, which in 2009 was called the Wizard Queensland Cup. The addition of the Sunshine Coast Sea Eagles meant 12 clubs participated, with each club playing 22 matches (11 home and 11 away) over 26 weeks. In 2009 the Wizard Queensland Cup introduced a six-team finals series (compared to five in previous years).

The Pride finished second and reached the Grand Final, losing 32-18 to the Sunshine Coast Sea Eagles at Stockland Park. Coach Andrew Dunemann left at the end of the season to take up a position as assistant coach to Rick Stone at the Newcastle Knights.
