The Gold Coast Titans have had three players named in the 2021 Australian Schoolboy side.
Titans contracted players Tom Weaver, Ryan Foran and Jack Cullen were all named in the representative side.
All three have put in strong performances for Palm Beach Currumbin State High School (PBC) and for the South Coast Schoolboys side earlier this year at the Queensland Schoolboys carnival.
Weaver was selected at halfback, Foran in the back-row and Cullen at prop.
Titans Elite Player Development Manager Jamie McCormack says it is great recognition for the players named.
“This is a great recognition of the Titans Junior System and also our links to the elite rugby league schools on the Gold Coast – in this case, Palm Beach Currumbin State High School,” McCormack said.
“They’ve followed the same path since they were 14-years-old and have put in plenty of hard work that has been rewarded with this selection.
“All three boys are Norther Rivers products, with Tom and Jack playing for Cudgen and Ryan with Murwillumbah junior rugby league clubs.
“These three are great examples of our junior pathway system at work. They’ve gone from a local junior rugby league club, into our Northern Rivers Titans representative teams, they’ve played for one of our affiliate schools (PBC) and also with our feeder club in Tweed Seagulls.
“There are plenty of other young players within our Junior Titans System that would have been on the fringe of selection and the depth in our program with young players from across our whole catchment area is fantastic.”
Once their schoolboy commitments are complete, all three players will get to taste an NRL pre-season when they link with Justin Holbrook’s side for training in November.
