The northern rivers U/16 AFL team won the southern Queensland affiliate league carnival, beating Wide Bay in the final.

On the Saturday of the weekend carnival played at Burpengary two weeks ago the northern rivers side won two of their three games playing Wide Bay, Moreton Bay and Darling Downs.

On the back of this success the team qualified for Sunday’s final.

‘The carnival was a big success for the northern rivers boys with some outstanding performances from the older players and some great team performances over the four games,’ team spokesman Nick Rojo said.

Conall Barrett won player of the carnival and Oliver Rojo was recognised by the Suns.
