Throughout the first two weeks of rugby league season, Group 19 selectors had hawk-eyes on the region’s standout football stars.
The newly-elected 2017 selectors were tasked to choose this year’s under 23s representative side.
Of the 20-man squad three Moree Boomerangs players were chosen including Kyle Saunders, Jason Saunders and Zac Sampson.
Warialda’s Sam Cooper, Casey Bowman and Mitch Parker were also selected for the representative side.
On April 29 the squad will play Group 4 and Group 21 in Armidale for Northern Division selections.
If chosen for the Northern Division squad, players will head to the New South Wales Country Championships.
