Stu Allen Photography had the pleasure in shooting the confraternity shield 2012 rugby league competition.
Was great to see so much good football from young kids.

The Confraternity Carnival is an annual schoolboys’ rugby league competition conducted by the Queensland Independent Secondary Schools’ Rugby League (Q.I.S.S.R.L). The Carnival has been in existence since 1980 and in that time has developed a reputation as one of the most formidable schoolboy rugby league competitions in Australia. The Carnival is played each year in a different city in Queensland and the competition is for the Open or Firsts team from each school. Teams take a squad of 20 players to the Carnival.

Round 6 Tweed Head Seagulls v Northern Pride.

A COURAGEOUS defensive performance in the first 15 minutes was the catalyst for Tweed Heads Seagulls continuing on their winning in their round 6 Queensland Rugby league Intrust Cup clash with Northern Pride .

Pride dominated the possession during that opening periods they had ball-carriers pulled down within a metre of the Seagulls try line on more than one occasion .

It truly was a memorable defensive performance by the home side which, after weathering the onslaught, finally got their fair share of possession and subsequently field position to enable them to run in four tries to take what appeared to be an unassailable 24-0 in the sheds at half-time.

Northern Pride ensured it was a nail-biting finish by posting three tries after the break, the final touchdown with three minutes still on the clock.

Corey Blair had a match to remember – he shouldn’t have had to put his hand into his kick to buy a beer at the post-match function.

Seagulls 24 (Tom Merritt 3, Matt Carbutt tries; Brad Davis 4 goals) def Northern Pride 22 (Daniel Crampton, Scott Gibson, Ty Williams, Ben Spina tries; Chey Bird 3 goals).
