The Queensland Rugby League has announced the under-16 City and Country sides for their inaugural fixture on September 29.

The game will be played in place of the annual Queensland vs New South Wales under-16 Origin, with a Queensland under-16 merit side to be named after the game.

The teams were selected largely based on the performances of the players at the 2019 Junior State Championships, which took place on the Sunshine Coast last month.

The game will be played on Sunday, September 29 at Redcliffe’s Dolphin Stadium, as a curtain raiser to the Intrust Super Cup Grand Final.
