Murgon Mustangs are hosting a huge two days of rugby league action this weekend with some of the best young players in country Queensland ready to show off their skills on the paddock.
The combined Under 18 and Under 20 47th Battalion carnival will feature teams from the South Burnett, Bundaberg, Central Highlands, Gladstone, Rockhampton, Roma, Toowoomba and the Queensland Outback.
The games will be played across two fields at Murgon Sportsgrounds.
Kick-off is at 9:00am on Saturday (June 29) with the finals for the Trophy and Plate starting at 9:00am on Sunday.
A QRL spokesperson said the U18 and U20 carnival provided an opportunity for junior players who were not currently playing in Meninga Cup or Colts competitions to play high-level representative rugby league.
At the end of the carnival, Under 18 and Under 20 Central Crows teams will be selected to play South-East Queensland on July 27 at Bishop Park in Nundah.
QRL Central Region Program Manager Jodie Teys said the carnival was a great opportunity for young players from regional areas to “really shine”.
