Young Eels named in Australian Schoolboys side
The Parramatta Eels would like to congratulate the following Blue & Gold representatives who have been named in the 2017 Australian Schoolboys Rugby League side following the recent national school’s carnival last week, held at St Mary’s Sports Stadium.
Blue & Gold junior representatives Dylan Brown, Oregon Kaufusi, Kyle Schneider, Ethan Parry and Jesse Cronin (pictured above (L-R) with Parramatta Eels Recruitment and Retention Manager Anthony Field) have been selected in the side.
Brown, Schneider, Parry and Cronin were members of the victorious Parramatta Eels SG Ball side, beating the Cronulla Sharks in the Grand Final earlier this year, before going on to claim the 2017 National title.
Kaufusi has been a regular with the Parramatta Eels NYC side in 2017.
The Australian Schoolboys will play a two-test series against the Kiwis in New Zealand during September.
The first Test is set to take place in Rotorua on Tuesday 26 September, followed by the second Test in Auckland on 30 September.
