BEAUDESERT rugby fans are in for a treat this month Jordan Petaia and Chris Feauai-Sautia from the Queensland Reds come to town.

Warriors spokesman Brent Kohlhagen said it was an honour to have the players come to visit Beaudesert.

"It's so good to see the Reds come to Beaudesert," he said.

"I hope the community takes the opportunity to come and meet these professional rugby players."

Nineteen-year-old Petaia, who also plays for Australia, was the youngest starter at the 2019 Rugby World Cup and the youngest Wallabies player at any Rugby World Cup.

Feauai-Sautia was recruited to the Queensland Reds straight out of high school and has played eight seasons.

Mr Kohlhagen said the event would take place at the Beaudesert Rugby Union Club at Everdell Park, Gleneagle from 5pm on December 17.

Queensland Reds spokesman Kris Burton said the visit was part of the Reds to Regions tour that had seen members of the Reds squad touring regional towns.

The tour started in the first week of pre-season training last month and sent several Queensland Reds team members, including head coach Brad Thorn and assistants Jim McKay, Peter Ryan and Cameron Lillicrap, to 22 regional areas.

"We now have Wallabies players who are coming back to training a bit later because of their commitments to the recent World Cup," Mr Burton said.

"Jordan and Chris will arrive in Yarrabilba next Monday night, where they will meet their billet families at the Shaw Street oval.

"One of them is staying with a family at Canungra and another will be billeted with a family at Beaudesert."

Mr Burton said both players would be putting in some work to help local residents on their properties.

"The idea is for these players to get in touch with the communities they are representing on the field.

"The coaching staff led by Brad Thorn is wanting them to help out on a farm.

"They just want to get in touch with the community and see what everyday life is like for them."

Mr Burton said they looked forward to the barbecue in Beaudesert for next Tuesday.
