Group 16 stars called up for under 20s Origin

Five former Group 16 players have gained selection in the under 20 State of Origin NSW and Queensland teams to play this Saturday at Sportingbet Stadium Penrith.

Former Merimbula junior Euan Aitken, Tathra's Adam Elliott and Moruya's Rhys Kennedy will all line up for NSW while Ben Halfpenny and Tom Hughes both from Merimbula will represent Queensland.

Group 16 president Dean Lynch congratulated the players and said it showed the local area was a breeding ground for quality football players.

"It just goes to show that Group 16 has a proud tradition of fostering young talented sports people in our region," he said.
