Sweet Sixteen for U16s
In the under-16s game before tonight's All Stars clash, a try to NSW prop Luciano Svegalli four minutes from full-time saw the Queensland Murri and NSW Koori record a 16-all draw, the fourth drawn result in seven clashes between the two teams. Queensland retained the shield on account of their win in Newcastle in 2014.
After scores were locked together at 10-all early in the second half a penalty goal to McKenzie Baker and a try to Treavon McGinness put Queensland in front 10 minutes from full-time before Svagelli's try underneath the posts saw NSW draw level again.
Baker had a chance to steal victory with a shot at penalty goal one minute from the final whistle but the attempt from 30m out was waved away.
