QRL confirms Queensland Under 19 men’s squad

Queensland Rugby League has today confirmed the Queensland Under 19 men's squad to play New South Wales at Leichhardt Oval, Sydney, on June 23.

The 22-player squad assembles in Brisbane tomorrow under experienced head coach Kurt Richards.

Richards takes the reins of a talented Queensland squad that includes Under 20s “marquee” player Jack Howarth, who is eligible for the highly-anticipated representative match.

A former Australian Schoolboys and Queensland Under 18 representative player, Howarth is in his second season in the Melbourne Storm’s top 30 squad.

The Queensland squad also includes exciting Gold Coast talent Jojo Fifita, who has been named 18th man for the Titans in their NRL clash against the Cronulla Sharks in Coffs Harbour.

Fifita will lap up the NRL experience before joining his Queensland teammates in Brisbane over the weekend.

The young Queenslanders will have field sessions at Wavell State High School and Davies Park, before travelling to Sydney on Wednesday.  

The squad includes a host of players who have excelled in Queensland’s Auswide Bank Mal Meninga Cup, Hastings Deering Colts and Hostplus Cup competitions.

Townsville Blackhawks have been rewarded for their strong performances with six players named in the squad.
