Southern Cross Group Stadium to host Schoolboys clash

Lead by Sharks SG Ball representative and Junior Rep Player of the Year Blayke Brailey, the Australian Schoolboys will feature in the prelude to this Saturday's #NRLSharksRaiders clash, in taking on the England Academy side at Southern Cross Group Stadium.

The clash will precede the Sharks and Raiders fixtures in both the NYC & NRL on Saturday afternoon, with the Australia versus England match to get underway from 1:10pm.

Sharks Members and fans are encouraged to get to the ground early - with gates to open at 1:00pm - to catch a glimpse of the game's rising talents.

NRL General Manager League Integration and Game Development Andrew Hill said the Schoolboys clash is one not to miss.

“Just 12 months ago Nathan Cleary (Panthers) and Curtis Scott (Storm) were selected in the Australian Schoolboys side and have now played first grade,” Mr Hill said.

“We look forward to the next batch of outstanding talent continuing to emerge through our pathways.”

Last weekend, the Australian side downed England in the first of two matches of the series running out 50 points to 26 victors.
