The Aquis Titans had four players selected in the Junior Kangaroos and Junior Kiwis squads to play a Test on Saturday. We spokje to our Kiwis Kurt Bernard and Greg Leleisiuao
Both were born and raised in Auckland before leaving for Melbourne and eventually finding their way to the Gold Coast. They benefitted from the first half of the pre-season spent training with our NRL squad.
Centres John Olive and Brian Kelly (who is the Kangaroos's 18th man) were teammates in the NSW under-20s Origin side last year and now find they are elevated to Australuan honours.
We will talk with them later in the week.
Considering the Titans also boast last year's Holden Cup player of the year and Junior Kangaroos halfback Ash Taylor and 2014 Holden Cup player of the year Kane Elgey, there is a strong youth policy which is starting to show its potential.
