Broncos Challenge schoolboy rugby league Team of the Grand Finals – 20 of Queensland’s best rookies revealed after five youth grand finals.

We named the Team of the Grand Finals after the five 2021 Broncos Challenge schoolboy rugby league grand finals played over the last 48 hours.

On Tuesday Marsden SHS won the year 7 Broncos Old Boys Cup, while PBC claimed the year 8 Renouf Shield, then yesterday PBC SHS twice beat Keebra Park SHS (Hancock and Walters Cup) while Wavell won after the bell in the Langer reserves over Marsden SHS.

Matches were livestreamed by News Corp and featured among the best rising talent in the state.

PBC SHS Renouf Shield coach Geoff Eggart said it was a great win by his side to topple the benchmark outfit of the competition – Marsden SHS.

“We basically lost one game to Redcliffe the whole competition and Marsden have been the benchmark all year so we were just delighted to get the chocolates. They worked really hard,’’ Eggart said.

Marsden SHS Old Boys (year 7) competition coach Cameron Webb said it was a great team performance to finish off the season with a win over Ipswich SHS.

“It was a team performance. There were a number of players who put up their hands. That was the real strength of his team – that there was 13 and not relying on one or two to get the job done. “They came together to work as a unit.’’

Marsden SHS beat Ipswich SHS well, but Ipswich still showed plenty of promise – according to our Ipswich reporter Daviid Lems who named their best players here.

Then yesterday Wavell SHS coach Mick Roberts, who has seen plenty in rugby league, was stunned to see his five-eight Nayten Iselin-Jansen field a drop kick restart 65m out as the full-time hooter sounded, and then score to break a 12-all deadlock.

Iselin-Jansen was the last to board the team bus after the match and was beaming like a boy about to sit on Santa’s lap.

Marsden SHS fullback Dom Sandow and Wavell SHS hooker Harri Sykes also shone in an all-star match, while Marsden pair Marley Lupeomanu and Jermaine Pangai impacted their side.

On the Gold Coast, PBC SHS were confirmed as the 2021 SEQ schoolboy champions with wins in the Hancock and Walters Cups – following last week’s NRL Schoolboys Cup win over Marsden SHS.

That made it four premierships for PBC SHS from six grand finals.

Yesterday in the Hancock Cup PBC SHS centre Sunny Karma was presented with the man of the match award, while Keebra Park SHS’s prop Micah Eteru and PBC SHS fullback Sam Stephenson also shone.

In the Walters Cup PBC SHS’s Jaylan Taewa scored the go-ahead try in the second-half and was near-perfect from the tee, most from the sideline, in a great individual performance. One of his tries was set up by interchange player Reshawn Anderson.

PBC SHS Zane Harrison made some early errors but his constant voice and playmaking presence in the middle of the park was key to PBC’s success, while Keebra Park centre Dorian Lotaki scored a great bustling try and shone for his side.Special mention for two players who narrowly missed our squad, Kallum Stacey-Weatherall (Wavell SHS Langer Reserves who was a Langer Trophy standard player, and Marsden SHS five-eighth Caleb Cresswell (Marsden SHS, year 7) who sparked his team.
