NSW Koori Under-16 Squad Named

Relatives of stars of yesteryear will represent the NSW Koori Under-16 side at next Thursday’s annual 2017 All Stars clash against Queensland Murri Under-16 at Newcastle's Hunter Stadium.

The 20-man squad includes Joseph Gordon – the son of former Knight Ashley Gordon and Jarrod Peachey – relative to David and Tyrone Peachey.

Former Parramatta hooker Dennis Moran will coach the side as they look to claim victory after draws in their past two meetings.
