THE Laidley Lions will play on this year, flood or no flood.

While the Laidley junior rugby league team's fields were flooded last weekend, the club is promising to keep on going and will see one of Queensland's favourite players there to lend a hand.

The Brisbane Broncos' Corey Parker and fellow forward Brendan Gibb will be visiting the Lions for the club's sign-on day on Sunday.

Laidley will be holding their sign-on at the Laidley Function Centre rather than the flooded Lions home ground.

Club president Linda Dowie said flood water had run through the Lions sheds, ruining some gear as well as the canteen.

"We were fairly well stocked with gear after the last flood, and we've lost a fair bit of it now," she said.

"It's not going to stop us though ... we'll definitely be ready for when the season kicks off!"

Dowie said the club was looking to field teams across the board from under-7 to open.

After a strong 2012, when the Lions under-11, 12 and 14 teams won their grand finals, the Lions are looking to take out even more titles in 2013.

"We had a great year in 2012, we took out three age groups and the under-13s were runners up in their grand final too," Dowie said.

"Our coach of the year Robby Bichel is back as our coaching director too.

"We've had some really strong player numbers in recent years and we're hoping to have about the same this year too."

The Lions' sign-on will be held at the Laidley Function Centre on Sunday.
