Change to Australian Schoolboys match

The ASSRL's (Australian Schoolboys) match against England Academy will now be played following tomorrow's NRL match at Southern Cross Group Stadium due to the inclement weather in Sydney.

The second match of the series will now commence at 8.05pm tomorrow, after the Sharks' match against Canberra.

The match was due to be played prior to the Holden Cup game, but has been shifted in order to protect the pitch for the NRL fixture.

The Australian Schoolboys won the first match of the series 50-26 at Dolphin Oval, Redcliffe last Saturday.

NRL General Manager League Integration and Game Development Andrew Hill said he looked forward to seeing the next batch of outstanding talent.

"Last Sunday's match showcased some of the talented youngsters in both Australia and England and I would encourage the fans who watch the NRL match to remain to watch these outstanding players," Mr Hill said.

"Last year, Nathan Cleary and Curtis Scott played for the Australian Schoolboys and I'm sure we will see some of the players on show tomorrow in the NRL at some stage."
