CRL TV visit the 74th Annual Riverina Schoolboys Carnival in Junee featuring over 1300 players and 125 teams and speak with former New Zealand International Roy Asotasi and Australian Jillaroos Maddie Studdon.

Teams ranging from under 7s to under 15s  battled it out at Laurie Daley Oval, Loftus Oval, Burns Park and Junee Showground with over 500 games taking place across the day.

The competition will be followed by the inaugural Riverina League Tag Football Carnival, which will be played on Sunday, 6th August.

The carnival has come a long way since its humble beginnings in 1943, when just six teams competed.

That number is incomparable with this year’s 123, which still falls well short of the record 242 which competed in 1969, when it was still a knockout rather than a round-robin.

Throughout its long and decorated history, the carnival has been the breeding ground for some of Australia’s best players, including Laurie Daley, the Mortimer brothers, Peter Sterling and Trent Barrett.
