Live stream: Watch seven days from the ASSRL Boys U15, Girls U16 National Championships

It’s one of rugby league’s showcase junior tournaments – and it kicks off with a bang from Port Macquarie on Saturday. Catch 13 games LIVE.

Watch live: ASSRL Nationals Day 1…

The action kicks off with two matches from the U15 boys tournament before the girls round robins.

Queensland Maroons have made a massive statement of intent, thrashing ACT 38-4 to open their ASSRL U15 boys national championship campaign in some style.

Three Maroons players scored doubles, including skipper Lincoln Dalton, while the ACT could only secure the one try.

Queensland came out all guns blazing, scoring three tries in the opening 10 minutes through Majah-Jose Peachy, Kingson Seve and Dalton.

ACT worked into the game towards halftime, maintaining more possession until it finally paid off.

A strong set down the width of the field found Tyler Stonham, who offloaded to Uhlia Tai for the try.

The Queenslanders hit back straight away courtesy of Ethan Grimshaw, who had just been brought into the match.

It took the Maroons 11 minutes to score their first try after the break when a brilliant play by captain Dalton put the game away.

Peachy added a second try, running the full length of the field following an intercept right on his own try line, while Grimshaw planted his own not long after.

A penalty goal for the Maroons to end the match sealed the victory.


NSW Combined Catholic Colleges (CCC) coach Brad Melville believes the depth in his squad will be key as they prepare to open the inaugural ASSRL U16 Girls Nationals on Saturday.

The NSWCCC side will kick off the girls tournament against rivals NSW Combined High Schools, before also clashing with Western Australia and NSW Combined Independent Schools on a frantic opening day.

Every match of the ASSRL Nationals will be exclusively LIVE STREAMED on KommunityTV, with Saturday’s action kicking off with two matches from the U15 boys tournament before the girls round robins.

With the girls tournament played in a shortened 20-minute game format for the round games, it means sides will play three games a day, with a rest day in between matches, before finals kick off on Wednesday.

The finals will be played in a longer 50-minute format.

Melville said the increased number of games, and short turnaround between matches, would mean every player in the 20-women squad will be called upon.


“I think that’s been the most difficult part of the preparation,” coach Melville said.

“Making sure we’ve got the depth in our squad to do both formats.

“We’ve had to obviously prepare for short games, where you’ve got to just be ready to go. Then once you hit the finals they’re full games, so we’ve had to pick a squad that can do both.”

Melville said a key focus for him was to build a team that can deliver no matter who is on the field.

Sienna Thomas will have a big role to play for NSWCCC.

Halves Sienna Thomas (St Brigid’s Catholic College) and Macey Cox (St Joseph’s, Aberdeen) will steer the side around the park, while Melville has backed his engine room to match it with most sides in the competition.

“We’ve got some really quality halves that can guide the team around, our front row and lock can just really get our team forward,” he said.

“We’ve also got some really powerful girls coming off the bench, so I think we’ve got all our bases covered.”

Melville said the competition will be a bit of an unknown for the girls and they have tried to select a team that can play to all strengths.

The NSWCCC selectors have picked three girls for the side’s leadership team, who were all named as standouts from the trials in August.

“We’ve got three players that will lead the side as captains in Macey Cox, Sienna Thomas and Lily Ryan,” he said.

“They just have this ability to bring all the girls together, we saw that at the trials and we’ve seen it at training since.”
