Capras select CQ junior representatives

The CQ Capras junior teams for the upcoming Central Junior Carnival have been announced following a successful weekend of trials in Blackwater.

Hosted by the Central Highlands Junior Rugby League, the trials saw representative teams from the Central West, Gladstone and Rockhampton join the host region for a fun weekend of rugby league to select the CQ junior sides to compete at the upcoming Central Region (Division) Junior Carnival in Chinchilla.

Players from across the regions had one goal in mind – to impress the selectors and they certainly knew how to do that with some skilful rugby league on display – making the job hard for the Capras coaching staff.

New carnival rules were introduced this year following the Capras' Intrust Super Cup club amalgamation with the Junior Capras' Division-based program.

This included not playing for points, allowing for teams and selectors to forget about the scoreboard and just concentrate on impressing the selectors with high quality rugby league.

Thanks to sponsors the LCR Group, YanCoal and Nu-Tank for their support of the carnival – without their generosity, events like this one simply can't go ahead.

A massive thanks must go to all the volunteers who assisted with the weekend to ensure the trials went ahead without a hitch, particularly the Blackwater Crushers Junior and Senior clubs.

A special thanks must go to the CHJRL committee, QRL, NRL and Capras staff, the Capras coaching staff and selectors and all the match officials for the hard work put into the weekend.

The Central Highlands Junior Rugby League should be congratulated on the success of this year's trials and the Capras look forward to next year's trials set to be held in Gladstone.
