Rugby League Development Cup

Highfields State School - NRL Development Cup Champions 2015 (Toowoomba) 

Congratulations to the 2015 Highfields State School Under 12 boys rugby league team which defeated St Mary’s  12 – 6 last week to win the Toowoomba area  NRL Development Cup competition.

A lapse in defence from the kick saw the boys down 6 - nil after only two minutes. To the credit of this calm, business-like team, Highfields State School hit back five minutes later to level the score at 6 - all. This was the score at half time. Early in the second half, Highfields crossed the line to take the score to 12 points to 6. The boys were amazing in defence to deny St Marys the chance to score again in the game. This was especially the case late in the second half when the boys were asked to defend for 6 repeat sets on their line.

The boys are now continuing to train for Super Six day at Dalby on Wednesday June 10 when they play as one of the top six primary school teams from across the Darling Downs to establish the Darling Downs Development Cup champion team.

Well done boys, Highfields is very proud of you. Good luck in Dalby
