Kaylem was the only U11 player to be selected from the Whitsundays Schoolboys' competition to play for the North QLD team.

He travelled to Townsville every weekend for a month just for training and competed in Bundaberg recently with his team.

The carnival hosts 10 of the best teams in Queensland and Kaylem's team from North Queensland came in third overall.

This is the best result North Queensland has ever had in the carnival.

A massive effort given as they were the underdogs and competed against some amazing teams.
