Queensland Rugby League has today announced the State Under 18 team to play New South Wales at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Wednesday, June 17.

The Queensland squad assembles in Melbourne next Thursday to prepare for the annual representative match.

As the curtain-raiser to Game II of the Holden State of Origin series, the interstate clash provides an exciting opportunity for some of the country’s best young talent to showcase their skills on a major stage.
