A grand final winning performance has rocketed a Far North Queensland product into the green and gold while the Dolphins appear to be in good hands.

Following a thrilling Australian Secondary Schools Rugby League national championships, which was won by Queensland in dominant fashion, Australian schoolboys selectors have settled on an exciting 17-man squad.

The Australian squad, which features a range of future NRL talents, is expected to play against the best of Britain later this year with a match yet to be confirmed.

The victorious Queensland side has a lion share of players in the top-17 squad with seven named while the rest of the list is split between the NSW Combined High Schools, Combined Catholic Colleges and Combined Independent Schools.

Meet the Australian Schoolboys squad

Arama Hau (Queensland)

The Keebra SHS captain and No.13 was a left edge wrecking ball, having a huge impact despite previously not playing full-time as a backrow edge running.

Liam Le Blanc (Queensland)

The Norths Devils junior who attends rugby union stronghold Nudgee College played his way into the squad after cast iron performances at prop. He is signed by South Sydney.

Chris Faatgutu (Queensland)

The Marsden SHS Langer Trophy captain was an interchange ace for the Maroons, using his speed and agility to great effect in the middle.

Keano Kini (Queensland)

The Titans signed fullback from PBC SHS was magnificent for his adopted state, with a running game unmatched from the back. The New Zealand born Kini was also a handy front line ballplayer.
