Ju­nior touch footy duo to con­test state champs

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

TWO Ju­nior Sharks have been cho­sen to rep­re­sent Penin­sula at the Queens­land School­boys touch foot­ball car­ni­val com­pe­ti­tion in Bris­bane next month.

Their coach Adam Fis­cher said he was very happy for the boys and said that they de­served the spot as they have both been train­ing hard and have shown a lot of ded­i­ca­tion dur­ing the past few weeks.

Trazane Cobb-Fis­cher, 12, who plays five-eighth, said he was thrilled to be picked and is ex­cited about go­ing away to play.

“I just love the game and playing with my friends and go­ing away will be fun and I will be try­ing hard to win,” Trazane said.

And his mate, Austin Tay­ley, 12, who plays in the cen­tres, said he was just as keen to play away and to rep­re­sent his re­gion.

“We will have to work hard but this is a real thrill for me too - I love the sport and the chance it has given me to make some good mates,” Austin said.
