As many as 3,440 junior Rugby League players will next week converge on Western Sydney for the 2016 All Schools Carnival.
The carnival, now in its 72nd year, is an opportunity for the best school teams from each district to compete at a State Championship. Approximately 200 teams will compete over three days of Rugby League in three divisions.
