    Half Tyler Harper is one of six 2020 Tweed Heads Seagulls Group 18 U14 players who are currently training as part of the Titans Elite Academy Program.

    In 2020 Tyler Harper played half back for the Tweed Heads Seagulls U14 side in the Group 18 junior rugby league competition with the Seagulls going through the ten regular season rounds undefeated, scoring 316 points and conceding just 64 to finish the regular season with +252 points differential from their ten matches to record an average winning margin of just above twenty five points.

    As a result of their outstanding season the Tweed Heads Seagulls U14 side qualified for the Grand Final against the Tugun Seahawks. Tweed Heads prevailed in the 2020 decider 30 – 4 with Tyler Harper starting the Grand Final at half back.

    In the 2020 Group 18 U14 Grand Final Tyler Harper operated primarily on the right side of the field and had a try assist in the Grand Final as well as converting the Seagulls third try from close to the right upright in the first half. Tyler Harper’s try assist came in the second half when he took the ball to the line before putting in a short stab kick which he weighted correctly for his right winger to dive on the ball in the in goal.

    Tyler Harper was also heavily involved in another Tweed Heads try in the second half when a long cut out pass to his right put his right centre into space who was then able to set up his support runner to score.

    Tyler Harper also attends PBC as part of their Elite Rugby League Program and in 2020 started at half back for the PBC Renouf Cup School Boy Grand Final side that went down in heart breaking fashion 10 – 8 to Marsden State High School.

    In the 2020 Renouf Cup Grand Final, Tyler Harper had a big game kicking two from two and also recording a try assist for PBC’s sole try of the match. In the second half with Marsden leading 6 – 0, Tyler Harper who was operating on the left, put in a deft grubber kick in to his left with the kick sitting up perfectly for PBC left centre and fellow Titans linked Tyler Small to fly through to take the ball and score next to the posts.

    Tyler Harper converted the try that he set up for Tyler Small and then kicked a late second half penalty goal to put PBC in front 8 – 6 before the heart break of seeing Marsden score in the last seconds of the match to snatch victory.

    Post the completion of the Renouf Cup school boy competition Tyler Harper was awarded a Future Reds Award at the 2020 PBC Sports Awards night.

    Tyler Harper also played touch in 2020 making the U14 Boys Queensland Fury side for the Queensland Oztag Super Series after representing the Tweed Coast Giants.

    Great to see the Northern Rivers Titans hard at work for their 2021 season including yesterday at Casuarina and Ballina last weekend.

    More than a few boys who are linked to the Titans and that are destined to have very good careers in rugby league.

    Competitive half back Levi Bannon who plays for the Beaudesert Kingfishers in the Gold Coast Rugby League competition and attends Marsden State High School is yet another talented junior in the Titans Elite Academy Program.

    Playing for Marsden State High School in 2020, Levi Bannon was outstanding in the Broncos Old Boys competition, producing a Player of the Match performance in the Grand Final at Langlands Park as Marsden defeated Coast Coast based Keebra Park State High School 26 – 6.

    In addition to being named Player of the Match, Levi Bannon scored the try of the Grand Final with a scintillating seventy metre solo effort towards the end of the first half. Operating on the left side of the field, Levi Bannon received the ball and ran at the line with the ball out in front of his body in two hands. As he approached the line Levi Bannon threw a subtle (very subtle) dummy to his left and literally sliced through the Keebra Park line and was simply too quick for the Keebra Park fullback as Levi Bannon outpaced him to score a supurb try.

    Even though the Keebra Park had the correct angle to come across in cover defence, Levi Bannon’s speed was simply too much and he was able to maintain distance between himself and the fullback to dive over fifteen metres in from the left corner post.

    Levi Bannon was at it again early in the second half of the Grand Final when he split the Keebra Park defensive line through sheer speed and footwork. Levi Bannon took the ball off the dummy half to the right of the play the ball on about the half way mark, taking the ball right into the heart of the Keebra Park before producing an outstanding left foot step at full speed to go right through the centre of the Keebra Park ruck. After running thirty metres Levi Bannon stepped off his left foot once again and almost beat the Keebra Park fullback as well but was just brought down as the fullback held on precariously to one of Levi Bannon’s legs.

    What the Titans are getting with Xavier Stowers:

    The powerful school boy rugby No.8 from the Ipswich Grammar School GPS Rugby First XV and the Ipswich Jets MM Cup side is a recent Titans signing coup and has the potential to fly through the junior rugby league ranks to the NRL in a short space of time.

    Xavier Stowers started Round One of the 2020 MM Cup competition in the front row for the Ipswich Jets against the Townsville Blackhawks. Unfortunately that Round One match was the only MM Cup match of the 2020 season due to the Covid 19 pandemic.

    Xavier Stowers started the 2020 GPS school boy rugby season in the Ipswich Grammar School’s First XV after making his First XV debut as a 16 year old in 2019.

    Round One of the 2020 GPS school boy rugby First XV competition saw Xavier Stowers line up at No. 8 against Toowoomba Grammar and Xavier Stowers continued his run of starts at No. 8 in Round Two against Nudgee College. Xavier Stowers also started at No. 8 in Ipswich Grammar School’s remaining 2020 First XV fixtures, which were against Brisbane Boys College (Round Three), Churchie (Round Four), Brisbane State High School (Round Five), The Shouthport School (Round Six) and Gregory Terrace in Round Seven.

    Whilst Xavier Stowers did not score in 2002 he was heavily involved in two tries over the course of the abridged 2020 GPS First XV season. In Round Four against Churchie, Xavier Stowers picked the ball up from the back of a scrum three metres out from the Churchie line and ran to his left, throwing a great one armed (right arm) off-load to his half who was brought down centremetres short but Ipswich scored from the subsequent ruck.

    Xavier Stowers was heavily involved later in the season in Round Six against the Southport School, when once again he picked the ball up from an Ipswich Grammar School scrum win five metres out from the TSS line. Xavier Stowers ran to his right, putting his No. 10 into a gap and he was able to twist over next to the left upright.

    In the 2020 Courier Mail South East Queensland school boy rugby/rugby Top 30 players of 2020 Xavier Stowers was named at Number 21 where the Courier Mail writers noted his exceptional combination of size, strength, speed and power at such a young age. Xavier Stowers made the same list in 2019.

    Xavier Stowers made his GPS school boy rugby First XV debut for Ipswich Grammar School in Round One of the 2019 GPS school boy rugby First XV competition against Brisbane State High school when he started at No. 8. Xavier Stowers went on to start at No. 8 in all of Ipswich Grammar Schools seven other First XV matches, being against Brisbane Grammar School (Round Two), Toowoomba Grammar School (Round Three), Nudgee (Round Four), Brisbane Boys College (Round Five), Anglican Church Grammar School (Round Six), the Southport School (Round Eight) and Gregory Terrace in Round Nine.

    Xavier Stowers first GPS school boy First XV rugby try came in Round Eight on the Gold Coast against TSS when Xavier Stowers charged at the line from close range a pass off a ruck that had formed two metres out from the TSS line. Xavier Stowers received the ball to the right of the ruck and under heavy pressure from multiple TSS defenders was able to keep his feet under him and put the ball down right on the goal line midway between the left corner post and goal post.

    In 2019 in addition to playing for Ipswich Grammar School, Xavier Stowers represented the Queensland Maroon U16 side at the National U16 Rugby Championships, starting for the Maroon side at No. 8.

    Xavier Stowers already has some rugby league experience, representing his heritage when he represented the Cook Islands U14 side at the 2017 QPIIC Tournament including scoring in an 18 – 4 Cook Island victory over Papua New Guinea.
