Brown one of three Eels named in Junior Kiwi extended squad to face Aus Schoolboys

Parramatta Eels five-eighth Dylan Brown is one of three Blue & Gold players named in a 25-man Junior Kiwis squad to take on the Australian Schoolboys at Redcliffe’s Dolphin Stadium in Brisbane on Sunday, September 29 (1.00pm kick-off NZT).

Parramatta Eels Jersey Flegg players Valance Harris and Etu Lui have also been named in the squad.

In a change from recent times, the Junior Kiwis’ age category has moved from under-20 to under-19.

Earlier in the year, Parramatta Eels Junior Representative players Tyler Field and Samuel Loizou were selected in the Australian Schoolboys side to face the Junior Kiwis.

Due to the clash scheduled for late September, during the NRL Finals period, the final Junior Kiwis side will not be confirmed until closer to the date.
