Meet the Langer Cup speed machines

Who were the speed machines of the Langer Trophy? Revealed here

Who were the speed merchants of the Langer Trophy competition?

Below are the speed demons who will be in action again on July 13 in round 3 of the Brisbane Broncos-sponsored Allan Langer Trophy elite schoolboy competition.

They are boys who can save tries or score tries because of their pace.

The round 3 games, and all Langer fixtures, were exclusively live streamed by The Courier-Mail, along with News Corp affiliates, on the KommunityTV platform.

Meet the Langer Cup speed machines

Palm Beach Currumbin SHS

PBC SHS coach Tim Maccan has had some jets in his team in recent seasons, and will have plenty of pace in the side again this season.

Watch for Sam Stephenson on the left centre, a big fast and agile edge player.

Creedence Donovan:

An Indigenous boy who had been playing in the Northern Rivers competition, Donovan has speed to burn.

Ray Peru:

Peru played for Burleigh Bears during the summer and is coming back from injury. He is naturally agile.

Redcliffe will have no shortage of pace this season, with three quicksilver athletes capable of breaking a match open with their pace.

First past the post would be O’Connell, but Risale also has plenty of pace from fullback or centre. Makai Duggan was “just a natural athlete’’ according to Redcliffe coach Jay Wilkinson.

The centre or winger can move and would be Ipswich SHS’s quickest mover. Xavier Kirk would give him a run for his money.

Kirk was as quick as they come in the Langer Reserves competition last year and in Ipswich’s Langer Trophy team, he has already shown glimpses of his blistering speed.

Round 1 was a prime example when he broke away for a solo try against Keebra Park.

Like Peckham-Harris, he isn’t the tallest but if he gets on the outside of you it’s pretty much game over.

Tyler Peckham-Harris:

The little bloke is deceptively quick. He is fast off the mark, but can also sustain pace over a long distance.

Will join 2022 teammates James Frazer, Joven Gyemore and the towering Loko Pasifiki Tonga at the Dragons once the year is out.

MAGIC MEN OF THE HALVES

Wavell SHS

Tyreece Tait:

They don’t come much better – or faster than Tait. The Broncos signed finisher has a long stride and bounces down field at a great rate of knots.

Mereki Waradoo:

The young representative fullback is dynamic and will give his side plenty of thrust from the back – watch for him pouring down the middle.

Not only is he quick but there’s only few that power through contact like this guy.

John-Paul Donevski:

John Paul relocated from New South Wales after playing in the NSWCCC for Patrician Brothers Blacktown.

The Penrith junior has pace, which is even more lethal when paired with height – which Doveski has.

Caloundra SHS

Brooklenn Mundraby-Grogan:

.
A centre, Brooklenn has a couple of gears. Originally from Cairns, he is back from injury and has been gaining more confidence and strength as the months past leading up to the season.

Also throw into the mix Toby Irvine (fullback), and Kaden Humphries.

Both boys can motor for Caloundra.

Mabel Park SHS

Ryan McCann:

He played wing and centre for Coombabah SHS previously in the Langer, but will be given freedom at fullback. “He has got wheels,’’ said coach Ben Weston.

McCann has already proven that in the three games so far this season.

Tyrese Tovao:

Tovao is another genuine quick. He is explosive, capable of running in tries from any distance. Jaycob Kingston-Francis is a light stepper whose pace was a big reason for moving from lock into the centres.

LANGER RESERVES PLAYERS TO WATCH

IPSWICH SHS DUO SIGN ON

STATE OF ORIGIN RIVALRY BETWEEN MABEL PK TEAMMATES

Marsden SHS

The Wynnum-Manly Seagulls Meninga Cup team had plenty of pace this year with Saxon Innes (left), Jett Bryce (centre) and Jaycob Kingston-Francis (right

The Wynnum-Manly Seagulls Meninga Cup team had plenty of pace this year with Saxon Innes (left), Jett Bryce (centre) and Jaycob Kingston-Francis (right

Saxon Innes (fullback) and Izayah Petricevich (winger):
These two offer plenty in the speed stakes. Inness is blinding over 10m while winger Izayah can reach top gear quickly, and sustain that speed. And Marsden also has a bolter when it comes to pace. “Will Semu when he is on. He can move,’’ said Marsden SHS coach Matt Hartigan.

Jett Bryce:

For a second rower Bryce has serious wheels. That near impossible trysaver he made against Marsden SHS at Cbus stadium is all the proof you need.

Mason Barber and Jeremiah Havea:

Barber has no shortage of speed at fullback and next to him is the tall Havea who can really move when he gets going.

With Tupuse in the centres, Keebra looked to have more than enough speed in their locker.
