RUGBY LEAGUE

SIX junior Whitsunday Brahmans players represented the club at the North Queensland Rugby League Championships in Cairns last weekend.

Blake Sylvester, Kieran Anderson, Shane Wright and Adam Bugeja were selected in the under-14s Mackay Junior Sea Eagles side, while Ben Fenech-Brebner and Lachy Bermingham were named in the under-13s.

Over the weekend the teams took on some of the best players in their age groups, tackling teams from Townsville City, Townsville Country, Mt Isa, Cape/Torres, Innisfail, Eacham and Cairns.

The under-13s side went through the competition undefeated to be named North Queensland Champions.

Following the triumph, fullback Ben Fenech-Brebner was stoked with the result.

“We were really excited and surprised,” he said.

“We had a good team, so we thought we were in with a good chance, but we can't believe we won.”

Although the under-14s side did not come away with the title, five-eighth and captain Shane Wright was named in the North Queensland team for his age group.

“It was pretty good and exciting,” Wright said.

“My main goal now is to try and make the Queensland side.”

Shane will now compete at the Queensland Rugby League Championships later in the year.

A good performance there could see him selected in the Queensland side.
