Brotherly love between the Taewa siblings will be cast aside when the boys confront each other in the first game.

Jaylen said, after playing juniors together for the Bilambil Jets, and alongside each other for the PBC SHS Walters Cup and Langer reserve teams, they did oppose each other for one season when Jury played for Nerang Roosters.

And earlier in this Langer season they were on opposing sides, but Jury was on the opposite side of the field to his brother and they did not really come together.

“I have not played against him properly. It will be a bit odd,’’ Jaylen said.

Jury added: “He deserves the spot he’s in and it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to play against my twin in a semi-final.

“He’s a hard worker. It will be good going up against another prop with the same skillset and mindset as me. I am keen to see what little tricks he’s got.’’

Jaylen said it would be a tough night for their mum, Renee and father Jury senior, because they won’t know who to cheer for.

In an insight into the four camps, the respective coaches have revealed who will be on top of their danger man tip sheets discussed by their players in the lead-up to the match.

The Marsden SHS halves pair have been in great form this season, Black having taken his game up a level from 2022 and Andrews having made a successful return from a serious neck injury.

Maccan said: “Leading up to last week I hadn’t watched much of Marsden since we played them in the first round. But I know Javon and Coby are the ones steering the ship.

“When they are playing well, when they are on fire, their team goes really well.’’

Matthew Hartigan (Marsden SHS)

Will Saunders and Baylen Donald

Hartigan had tremendous respect for old foes PBC SHS and could name multiple players, but he has really admired the work of hooker Will Saunders:

Saunders ability to play off a quick player the ball, advance on the defence himself or engage defenders before passing has caught the eye of Hartigan.

The name Saunders is very well known on the Gold Coast and across the border town, Tweed Heads, where Don played for both the Gold Coast Seagulls.

Hartigan also has big wraps on flame-haired edge back rower Baylen Donald who has been a force all year long in both the Tweed Seagulls Meninga Cup and PBC Langer Trophy teams.

Paul Stanley (Wavell SHS)

Oliva Iaulualo, David Leota and Anton Naiyep

Ipswich SHS captain Oliva Iaulualo will return from a week’s lay off and reunite with his childhood mate David Leota in the middle of the field for the defending champions.

Wavell SHS coach Paul Stanley will have his side ready for their impact.

“They have a very strong pack, but Oliva Iaulualo and David Leota are very powerful. And they have Naiyep out wide as well. He is a dangerous player.’’

Joshua Bretherton (Ipswich SHS)

Loto Salei and Zac Herdegen

Wavell SHS’s captain Loto Salei has been elite all season long playing a Pat Carrigan type of role for the Broncos.

He is a great link between the backs and forwards and can both run hard and create chances – as can halfback Herdegen.

Bretherton said Loto Salei was very damaging while Herdegen controls a lot of things and kicks really well.

“If we don’t do a good job of controlling him (Herdegen) he will kick us to death.”

Marsden SHS

Cory Pearse, Will Semu, Lui Lee, Javon Andrews, Taylon To’a, Braden Teuila, Mace Andrew, Elijah Leatigaga, Tyron Fanueli, and Thomas Taunagita

Cory Pearse said: “I have loved all the community things that Marsden has done. Not just in their sport, but academically for the students and their parents. It is like one big family.

“We have thousands of kids at school and we are all there for one and other.

Manager Thomas Taunagita started in his role as manager last year after damaging his ACL playing. “I thought it was the end of my rugby league journey,’’ he said.

“I was devastated but my teachers gave me a chance to be a manager. In year 10 I was the Titans Cup manager and that followed on through to Mr Hartigan asking me to be the Langer manager.

“I have loved being involved in the rugby league program.’’

Jai Camilleri said: “I came to Wavell in Year 8 and I was impressed with the culture, not only in the footy program, but how we enjoy our footy, school work. That is reflected in what we do on and off the field.

“This year did not start well, but the way we stuck to our program, focused on what Mr Stanley told us, we knew what we had to do to improve. There is a bond.’’

Zane Harrison said: “I started in Year 7 and the school has always accepted the footy program. You see teachers at the game supporting us.

There is a great culture at the school between the teachers and the students and I have really enjoyed my time here.’’


Jack Laing, David Leota, Oliva Iaulualo, Brandon Tikinau, Izaiah Mafi and Anton Naiyep.

Coach Joshua Bretherton said Laing had been at Ipswich SHS since the very start from Year 7.

“He’s got brothers and sisters at the school, he played his club football four minutes over the hill from school at the closest club, he went to primary school across the road.

“He’s born and bred within 300 metres of the school sort of thing and after helping us win the national title last year he has done a great job again this year.

“He’s worked hard and grown into a really high level footballer which is awesome.”

Another star of last year’s national championship team was winger Anton Naiyep who is originally from Papua New Gunea, and came to Ipswich via Cairns.

“He’s lived in Ipswich since he was 10 and has been with us the whole way through… He played his local football within a stones throw from the school (Norths Tigers) and is a local kid.”
