My U6's got flogged on Saturday morning. And it was still one of the best games we've had! The last of our boys scored his first try and the rest of the team all ran up and hugged him like it had just sealed the World cup!! So proud of their sportsmanship!
This boy struggled to catch the ball at the start of the season and would only make one or two hit ups a game. Very quiet, haven't seen him break into a run yet and usually pulls up before he gets to the other kids even though he is one of the tallest on the field. Really starting to get into it the last couple of weeks. My little fella managed four tries as an added bonus!

Met Wests & Met Easts made the final and Met Easts won 16-6
Great game and both deserved to be there
The young bloke didn’t have his have his best game in a couple of thegames but he learned a lot by playing at that level
And was stoked that he was awarded the Captaincy for the South Coast team before the carnival,

Five days at home , then off with the South Coast Touch Football
Team for the schools state title at Hervey Bay.
Never gets boring.

I don’t know Brisbane really well, but I think it’d be the area around Coopooroo
They’ve just changed their name fromBrisbane to Met ......East, Wests, South,North.
This is the first year that I’ve been involved in the high School sport, so I’m not too sure whether there was some that didn’t attend the Carnival,but I’d assume that all zones would be there.
Especially as the Qld 12,s team was selected.
Sorry, l forgot “Northern.” Was there,so I suppose that’s the old NQ
It’s hard for some of the Zones now as teams like Easts and Wests have almost their entire school teams in the Rep team and they play together all the time and they’re monsterous,

It’s like that in the opens with Keebra, PB, and Coombabah, on the Coast.but the talent has been spread further in the lower ages.
But that’s going to change after this years Carnival.South Coast is going to have to do the same or drop down from their usual high position, so will others as well,

Because of the size of these kids,the halves and hookers are at a huge disadvantage due to their smaller packs being constantly on the back foot , and the same kids in the average teams are having a free ride.Its not their fault but it means that for the good halves and DHs will have to get themselves into the teams with the big guys to be a chance of State selections
This will disadvantage the the outlying Zones more than others unfortunately.

It will be a mirror image of the opens very soon,
Just a mention of Sunday’s paper, in an interview with Glenn Campbell (Keebra Opens Coach) He Said Keebra has 80 approx. players eligible to play in their Opens team this year, it’s getting crazy,

There was no North Qld I think that they are covered by Capricornia now, This is the first year that I’ve been involved in the high School sport, so I’m not too sure whether there was some that didn’t attend the Carnival,but I’d assume that all zones would be there.
Especially as the Qld 12,s team was selected.
Sorry, l forgot there was a team called just. “Northern.”
I’d think that they were NQ,
OK Cooparoo from memory was Brisbane North back in the day , and yes Capricornia and Central were two separate areas

Central was Mackay to Townsville and western country areas , Peninsula was Cairns and above

Yeah I knew the Under 12 carnival was 1st weekend of the school holidays same as the Under 11 Laurie Spina Cup in Townsville

Then the last weekend of the school holidays they have the Jason Hetherington cup in Gladstone which is Under 12 clubs challenge

Can't remember any sides from the GC in the years we were involved , few clubs from Brisbane ,Ipswich , Sunshine Coast and Toowoomba and from Rocky ,Mackay ,Townville ,Cairns and Central Highlands

Couldn't believe they had scouts there , one fella who was watching one of our Under 11 boys (absolute beast ) was telling who the state players were etc .

My son was in the South Coast team at the same time as Cory Parker , and I think that it was SC for a while before that.i
don’t think that SC do a lot of carnivals up northexcept when the State selections are up there
I think the 11s last year was at Rockhampton

Yeah, there was a few scouts at the 12s last week, and there was a few conversations with parents going on

Boys got 13th after winning both games today

Girls got 8th after being beaten by one point in both matches

Team that beat the girls ended up winning the Cup itself
