RUGBY LEAGUE: Stu­dents from around the re­gion have had a chance show off their skills at the South West School Re­gion un­der 15 and U18 tri­als in Chinchilla.

Stu­dents from Roma, Miles, Tara, Charleville, St Ge­orge and be­yond con­verged on the town for the day of se­lec­tions on Mon­day.

NRL south­west gen­eral game de­vel­op­ment of­fi­cer Grant Bignell said the best play­ers would be se­lected to go to the Queens­land school cham­pi­onships in May.

“They come, they’ll play mul­ti­ple games and selec­tors and coaches will have a look and pick their sides from there and away we go,” he said.

For Bignell, the com­pe­ti­tion is a chance for stu­dents to get no­ticed.

“It’s a re­ally good op­por­tu­nity for these kids to go to a state car­ni­val and get to play against all the other re­gions and po­ten­tially if they’ve got it within them to be recog­nised and no­ticed from those above.”
