Warwick school has eyes on the trophy
RUGBY LEAGUE: The Assumption College open rugby league team will meet Dalby State High School in the final of the Johnathan Thurston Trophy at Glenholme Park (Brothers) in Toowoomba on Wednesday.
The game will start at 3.30pm and be two 25-minute halves.
In the run-up to the final, Assumption beat St Joseph's, Toowoomba 20-14 in the competition semi at Glenholme Park.
Coach Bob Bell rated Morgan Byrne, captain Jack Duggan and Sam Ogden as the best for Assumption.
"We defended really well on the edges and our forwards dominated the game.”
In the final, fullback Jayden Lippi, five-eighth Jack Duggan, half Nick Carrie, lock Tom Bell and hooker Tom Spence are in the five key positions.
Assumption lost to Dalby High in a round game so it would be a tough game against the same team.
"Front rower Wilson Le Sueur has to get us going forward,” Bell said.
Second rower Hayden Doherty said the game against Dalby High would be his second final for Assumption, the first was Broncos Cup last year.
"The game will be a challenge, training has been pretty good and we don't have any injury concerns.”
Doherty gets the pass from Carrie for most of his runs.
"I mainly play on the left.”
