Cricket was a popular sport at the institute and there were a number of cricket clubs across QRI branches throughout the state. This cup was used by the Brisbane based QRI Cricket Club during the 1950s to acknowledge members throughout the seasons. It was likely given to the cricketer with the most runs or wickets at the point in the season. The cup has numerous names engraved on it and it is evident that the Guzzler's Cup was awarded regularly to club members and reused often.
