THERE were battles aplenty at the inaugural rugby league Border Challenge between the Tweed and Gold Coast junior footballers but it was a strong outfit from north of the border that won out on the day.

Tweed-Byron group 18 operation manager Jeff Raftery said it was a "very successful" day for the juniors in the competition.

"The Gold Coast won all the games but it gave our boys some experience at a higher level," Mr Raftery said.

"We can develop our kids as a result, but the first Border Challenge trophy was presented to the Gold Coast."

The under 16 and 18 teams used the Border Challenge as a springboard for the Country Rugby League Championships to be held on June 12.

"About 90 of our kids were involved," Mr Raftery said.

"This (the Border Challenge) will be on our representative calendar each year."

The competition included under 13, 14, 15 and 16 representative teams.
