Schoolboys carnival big hit with kids

Another Riverina Schoolboys Carnival has ended with plenty of excited youngsters taking home pennants.

The largest rugby league carnival in the country attracted strong support with teams from across the Riverina and from as far as Canberra and Victoria descending on Junee on Saturday.

Organiser Lola Cummins said the big day was another success with 150 teams taking part.

“It all went off pretty well,” Cummins said. 

“We had one team pull out the night before and one who just didn’t show up on the day so that wasn’t bad and we had plenty of referees which was absolutely fantastic.”

Cummins said one of the highlights was 12 young ladies who helped referee the games.

The home team took out the 11A division as well as the 12B pennant.

Albury, Leeton, Tumut, Gundagai and Young also claimed A division pennants.

Turvey Park took out the 15B title with Wagga Magpies winning the C pennant in both under 10 and under 11.
