Did you know Dallin Watene-Zeleniak’s cousin, the nephew of Chris Sandow and the brothers of Brandon Smith and James Roberts were involved in the Langer Trophy this season?

It is a case of family ties at Marsden SHS, Wavell SHS, St Mary’s College and Mabel Park SHS with historic family links to past eras.

You don’t have to go too far back to remember when Dallin Watene-Zeleniak, the cousin of Marsden SHS five-eight Jardyn Stilinovich-Watene, was carving up teams in the NSW schoolboy competition.

Everyone remembers Alex Leapai as an elite heavyweight boxer, but of course he was once a schoolboy star at Woodridge SHS who was signed to a scholarship by the North Queensland Cowboys.

Now his son Alex junior is a leading light for Mabel Park SHS.

Brandon Smith’s brother Jayden comes off the interchange bench for Wavell SHS.

Like his brother, he is a team player who lifts morale around the training paddock and on game day.

And Prinston Esera’s brother Caleb is in the Canberra Raiders system where Prinston is also contracted.

Marsden SHS forward Sione Fotuaika, the brother of Queensland State of Origin workhorse Moeaki, is a Gold Coast Titans signed forward who is really working his way into the season.

Another Marsden SHS student with past connections is Dom Sandow, whose uncle is Chris Sandow was a schoolboy sensation and fine NRL and English Super League player.

Also seen in the Marsden SHS extended squad for the first time is goalkicking halfback Cody Hamilton, the brother of Intrust Super Cup gun Guy.

Up on the Darling Downs, St Mary’s College has Luke Cessari in its ranks, the brother of Brisbane Broncos contracted centre Blake, while De La Salle Va’a is the younger brother of St Mary’s prop Xavier, who is very highly regarded by all and sundry.

Palm Beach Currumbin SHS winger Michael Roberts is fast – and little wonder.

He is the brother of explosive Wests Tigers centre and former Blues player James Roberts.

And of course gun hooker Oskar Bryant has explosive Queensland Bulls cricket opener Max as an older sibling.

In action tomorrow, Ipswich, coming off a rousing second successive win, will look to retain momentum against St Mary’s College.

A little like Keebra Park SHS who have been sparked by the return of injured players, the improving Coombabah SHS have also started to play to their potential.

Providing he passes a fitness test, Coombabah’s clash with Marsden will be Quezon Eteru’s first game back since before the holidays.

Wavell SHS have a big task when they host Keebra Park SHS, last start winners of Palm Beach Currumbin.

PBC SHS will be on the rebound against Mabel Park SHS at Slacks Creek.
