2022 Junior Reps


Chantay Kiria-Ratu has only been playing rugby league for two years and credits older brother Jayrome for her stellar rise through the ranks.

The Queensland Under 19 playmaker has also been nurtured by the outstanding sporting program at rugby league powerhouse Keebra Park State High.

Chantay, just 17, is playing in the BMD Premiership with Tweed Seagulls.

Girls in the region will have the opportunity this weekend to take the next step in developing their game and receive some quality training as part of the South East regional trials for City selection.

With the three teams taking part this Sunday, this will allow them to showcase the skills they have learnt and some of them will be lucky enough to get picked for the Queensland Under 17 City squad which will go into camp and to play against Queensland Under 17 Country on the Hostplus Cup grand final day.

For all of them who have been a part of it, which is the broader group of around 70 to 80 girls, it actually provides wider skill development for next year, to apply those skills to whatever grade they wish and I think this type of program helps lift the overall quality of the football that we see in female rugby league.

Harvey Norman Queensland Maroons coach Tahnee Norris led the selection of the squads, so she kept an eye on them through the Harvey Norman Under 19 competition and the Under 18 competition we have run this year in QRL South East, and players were invited to take part in the Talent ID day.

They have now selected three teams and they have been training the last couple of weeks and will play on Sunday for that final City selection.
