See the future of NSW footy in Tweed

THE NSW Primary School Sports Association Open Rugby League team is on the Tweed honing its skills in preparation for its assault on the Australian national titles in Canberra on August 9.

The team is under the guidance of coach Gavin Holmes from St James Primary School at Banora Point, and has been using the school facilities during the four-day camp.

Players will be putting what they have learnt into practice this evening when they play a Tweed Byron Group 18 under-13 side at the Piggabeen ground, West Tweed, kicking off at 5pm.

“The boys in this side have come from around NSW - from Sydney, the Riverina and the central Coast, but sadly no-one from the Tweed,” Holmes said.

“Queensland has won the national title for the past three years, so we are aiming to break that run and prevent them from going four-up like the Origin side.”

The public is welcome to attend this afternoon's match and see the future of NSW rugby league in action.
