And what happens to the 16 year olds that would have qualified but now are competing against the 17 and 18s so basically 3 times the amount of kids.
    It’s an unfortunate situation that this years comps were cancelled I just never saw adjusting the age groups as the answer.
    And I am saying that as a parent of kid who was in his second year of Mal Mening.

    The 2020 season of Titans contracted Ryan Foran.

    After returning from a long term injury Ryan Foran was named on the Northern Rivers Titans extended bench for Round Three of the U18 Laurie Daley Cup competition against the Central Coast Roosters. Ryan Foran however ended up starting the match at left second row scoring a double with both tries coming off passes from fellow Titan Thomas Weaver.

    Ryan Foran and Thomas Weaver have developed a great understanding on the left over the last couple of seasons and that combination was on display multiple times once again in the 2020 U18 Laurie Daley Cup competition for the Northern Rivers Titans as it was for the 2019 Northern Rivers Titans U16 Andrew Johns Cup Grand Final winning side.

    Ryan Foran’s first try in Round Three resulted when he ran an outside shoulder route close to the Central Coast Roosters line to crash over. Ryan Foran scored his second try in the second half when he backed up a Thomas Weaver break to take the pass when Thomas Weaver drew the fullback to run twenty metres to score near the left corner.

    Ryan Foran also started at left second row in Round Four against the Greater Northern Tigers and in the Round Five local derby against North Coast scoring the Titans first try when he followed through a Thomas Weaver stab kick to pouch on the ball when the North Coast defence could not handle the bouncing ball.

    Also in 2020 Ryan Foran was part of the PBC Langer Cup Open A school boy rugby league squad however due to injury Ryan Foran was not able to take the field for PBC when the competition commenced.

    After missing the opening rounds of the competition Ryan Foran was named to start from the bench for the Round Three local derby against Keebra Park and started at left second row in rounds four and five against Keebra Park and Marsden State High Schools respectively.

    Ryan Foran started the 2020 Langer Cup Grand Final from the interchange bench for PBC as they defeated Keebra Park 16 – 8 in a high quality match, playing on the left side of the field when he came on.

    In the Queensland School Boys Final against Kirwan State High School Ryan Foran was named to start on the bench as PBC travelled to take on their North Queensland based opponents but came in the starting side at left centre late on the day of the match in PBC’s tough 24 – 20 loss.

    Ryan Foran played the 2020 club season with Murwillumbah, making his NRRRL First Grade debut in Round Eight when he came off the bench in Round Eight against the Bilambil Jets. Ryan Foran also came off the bench in the 2020 NRRRL First Grade Major Semi-final against the Tweed Coast Raiders, spending time on both sides of the field.

    Ryan Foran started from the bench and made some telling second half surges through the centre of the ruck as Murwillumbah prevailed 20 – 18 to earn a spot in the Grand Final. Ryan Foran also came off the bench in the Grand Final against the Tweed Coast Raiders. In the Mustangs 24 – 18 loss, Ryan Foran played in the left second rwo position when he came on, and could have scored a late try when he ran into space from around twenty metres out, instead of just running straight to the line, Ryan Foran guaranteed the Mustangs scored when he passed to left to his left centre.

    Ryan Foran was also a key member of the Murwillumbah U18 NRRRL side in 2020 leading them to the Grand Final. Ryan Foran started at right second row and was promanent throughout as the Mustangs went down 28 – 16 to the Cudgen Hornets in a bad tempered Grand Final.

    Where Kedan Chan-Tung played in 2020:

    The elusive Titans contracted outside back started at fullback for the Titans U18 side in their January 2020 match against the Newcastle Nights U18 SG Ball side scoring the Titans first try of the match and recording a try assist for the Titans second. Kedan Chan-Tung was deservedly named the Titans best back for his outstanding performance over the course of the match.

    Kedan Chan-Tung scored the Titans first try of the match early in the first half. With the Titans having a scrum feed around forty metres out from the Newcastle line, Kedan Chan-Tung lined up two passes off the back of the scrum to the right of the field around about in line with the uprights.

    After the Titans scrum win, Kedan Chan-Tung received the ball early running at the Newcastle line on a slight angle, probably around 30 degress, to the right of the field. Critically Kedan Chan-Tung ran at the line with the ball out in front of his body in two hands putting a degree of doubt in the Knights defensive line.

    As he approached the defensive line, Kedan Chan-Tung shaped to pass the ball to his right but instead pulled the ball back into his body quickly and slid expertly through a small gap in the defensive line and easily outpaced the Knights cover defence in a forty metre run to the line, scroring around fifteen metres from the right corner post.

    Late in the second half, Kedan Chan-Tung chased through a Thomas Weaver bomb, leaping over the Knights defence to take the ball on the full around three metres from the Knights line. With no way to get to the line Kedan Chan-Tung flicked the ball out of the back of his right hand to the left side of the field to an unmarked Jahreem Bula to dive over in the left corner untouched.

    Kedan Chan-Tung started Round One of the 2020 MM Cup competition at five eight for the Ipswich Jets against the Townsville Blackhawks. 2020 was the second season in a row that Kedan Chan-Tung has been the starting five eight for the Ipswich Jets MM Cup side scoring twice the first half as Ipswich started off their campaign with an impressive first up victory.

    Fellow Titans contracted player Orlando Swain was also a try scorer in that match for the Jets, in fact Orlando Swain scored the Jets first try of the match, with Kedan Chan-Tung scoring the second.

    Mid-way through the 2020 season Kedan Chan-Tung commenced training with the Titans U20 Rookie Squad on a regular basis, such is the regard that the Titans hold him in.

    In 2020 Kedan Chan-Tung also played rugby in Brisbane, playing for the Sunnybank Dragons in the Colts I competition operating primarily at No. 10. Kedan Chan-Tung had a particularly impressive match in Round Four when he started at fullback against Wests. Early in the second half Kedan Chan-Tung produced a great run beating at least four defenders before producing an outstanding off load to Samuel Samu who scored under the posts.

    The 2020 season of Titans contracted Bailey Martin:

    Unfortunately Bailey Martin suffered a shoulder injury playing in the City verses Country U16 match but was named in the 2020 South Coast Oceania U18 trial side as a result of a medical dispensation due the the shoulder injury he suffered in 2019.

    Bailey Martin started training with the Cudgen Hornets U18 NRRRL side in June 2020 and team mates in the side included fellow Titans Thomas Weaver, Oskar Bryant, Jack Cullen and Reef Sommerville amongst others.

    Bailey Martin unfortunately missed Round One of the 2020 NRRRL U18 competition due to injury but made his first NRRRL U18 appearance when he started from the bench in Round Three against the Bilambil Jets. Bailey Martin moved into the starting side in the front row in Round Four against Murwillumbah and in Round Five against the Bilambil Jets.

    After missing a number of rounds, Bailey Martin started Round Eight against the Tweed Coast Raiders in the front row.

    In Cudgen’s 2020 NRRRL U18 Major semi-final loss against Murwllumbah Bailey Martin started in the front row. Bailey moved to the bench as was at his hard working best as Cudgen qualified for the 2020 NRRRL U18 Grand Final on the back of a 24 – 16 Preliminary Final victory over the Bilambil Jets.

    Bailey Martin also came off the bench in the GRadn Final as Cudgen became the 2020 NRRRL U18 Green Premiers on the back of a 28 – 16 win over Murwillumbah with Bailey Martin tackling everything that moved in the decider.

    Also in 2020 Bailey Martin was part of the PBC Langer Cup Open A school boy rugby league squad, where he operated primarily at lock. In PBC’s first trial after the Covid 19 pandemic, Bailey Martin started at lock for the PBC A side that played against the PBC B side. Unfortunately due to injury Bailey Martin missed PBC’s Langer Cup Round One match against Ipswich State High School.

    Bailey Martin came back into the PBC Open Langer Cup side, coming off the bench in Round Two against Wavell State High School and operating as a running forward when he came on in the first half. Bailey Martin was unlucky not to score late in the second half after making a break but a desperate tackle by the Wavell fullback meant he could not ground the ball when he was over the line.

    Bailey Martin also started from the bench in Round Three of the Langer Cup against St Mary’s Toowoomba coming onto the field mid-way through the first half playing at lock for PBC as they maintained their unbeaten start to the 2020 Langer Cup competition on the back of a hard fought 16 – 6 victory.

    Bailey Martin moved in the PBC starting line at lock for the Round Four Langer Cup local derby against Keebra Park State High School but moved back to the bench for Round Five against Marsden State High School.

    Bailey Martin also started on the bench for PBC as they qualified for the 2020 Langer Cup Grand Final against Keebra Park on the back of an impressive 34 – 6 victory over Ipswich State High School. Bailey Martin was impressive in the match after coming on towards the end of the first half, especially defensively.

    Bailey Martin however also produced an outstanding hit-up early in the second half breaking multiple tackles when he took the ball up just inside the Ipswich end on the left side of the field. As usual Bailey Martin smartly cut back behind the play the ball when he took possession of the ball catching defenders not moving up and made them pay with a twenty metre run.

    Bailey Martin started the 2020 Langer Cup Grand Final from the bench for PBC as they defeated Keebra Park 16 – 8 in a high quality match, playing at lock when he came on and literally tackled everything that moved in his stint on the field.

    In the Queensland School Boys Final against Kirwan State High School Bailey Martin started on the bench as PBC travelled to take on their North Queensland based opponents and as usual tackled everything that moved when he came on to play in the middle of the field as PBC went down 24 – 20 in tough circumstances.

    One of the key players in this weekend's U20 GCRL Grand Final will be Helensvale's half back and captain Cameron Brown.

    He is certainly one of a number of players in the match destined for higher honours.

    I have been fortunate enough to see a few GCRL U20 matches this season and one of the best players in the competition (that I have seen at least) is Currumbin's Tyler Mahon.

    The young man will line up at fullback this weekend for the Eagles in their GCRL U20 Grand Final against the Helensvale Hornets.

    This weekend's GCRL U18 Division One Grand Final should be a very good battle in the forward pack with one of the leaders of the Currumbin pack will be Taanei Heu who will start in the front row against Burleigh.

    Great to see that the Titans have resigned giant young Keebra Park and Burleigh front rower Isaac Matalavea-Booth until the end of the 2021 season.
