Week 1 of the NRL Schoolboy Cup is in the books, with the Northern Conference completing Round 1 and the Southern Conference wrapping up the first half of their Round 1 action.

Southern Conference – Peter Mulholland Cup
The first four games of Round 1 were completed in the Southern Conference this week. Patrician Brothers’ Fairfield blew out Farrer to open the season, running in 12 tries, four of those to winger Billy Arena.

Erindale College did the same to Illawarra Sports in their opening round contest, also scoring 12 tries, three to standout back rower Noah Martin.

Holy Cross Ryde overcame an early deficit to defeat All Saint’s Maitland, while the game of the round took place at PointsBet Stadium with Endeavour running out six-point winners of Patrician Brothers’ Blacktown.

Northern Conference – Phil Hall Cup
Reigning Phil Hall Cup holders Palm Beach Currumbin got their title defence under way with a 44-point thrashing of Marsden. Fullback Keano Kini and rookie half Zane Harrison were the stars of the show for the Reds, both recording doubles. New boys Redcliffe State High had a tough introduction to the competition going down by 24 to Mabel Park, while Ipswich State High scored the upset of the round, disposing of Keebra Park at home.

In North Queensland, arch rivals Kirwan and Ignatius Park played out an entertaining 22-all draw, with a late try to Iggy Park prop Henry Teutau levelling the scores. St Patrick’s College one-upped their rivals Mackay State High with a dominant 32-point victory. St Pat’s halfback Jaxon Purdue scored twice in the win.

In the newly established Dolphins Cup, Emmaus College and St Brendan’s ran out winners, while unfortunately Shalom College v Bundaberg State High was postponed due to COVID issues.
