Six standout players from QLD Secondary Schools Championships

Queensland Reds Talent Manager Paul Carozza said a number of players from both traditional and non traditional rugby schools caught his attention at the Queensland Secondary Schools tournament last week.

Carozza said coaches from the Reds and Rugby Australia were on hand over the five days to identify the best players from across the state.

The Reds will announce two Academy teams next week to play matches against Rebels and Waratahs academies in June and September and Carozza said a number of players from the tournament were in the mix for selection.
