CONGRATULATONS to the Sunshine Coast Junior Stingrays Rugby Union Under 16 team that went through their six matches undefeated to win the Queensland Junior Rugby Union’s State Championships on the weekend. The tournament was played over three days at The Southport School (TSS) on the Gold Coast.
In other results, the Stingrays Under 13s won three of their six matches, while the Under 14s narrowly lost a couple and came away with two wins. The Under 12s competed for the first time as a developmental team and also won three of their matches, with Noosa local Amy Brice becoming the first female to be selected in a Stingrays team.
The QCRU selectors have rewarded the performances of the Junior Stingrays Under 16s with nine selections in the Country Team, four selections in both the Under 13 and 14 Country teams. All age groups played curtain-raisers to the QLD Reds vs Waratahs match at Suncorp Stadium last Saturday afternoon. A number of Noosa players have been selected to play in their respective QLD Country teams. The Noosa Dolphins would like to congratulate the following players on their selection:
Under 16 – Borore Howton, Harry Mohr and Tyler Searle; Under 14 – Jesse Russell; Under 13 – Tom Payne.
Congratulations to all these boys!
