International rugby league is heading to Whangarei with the announcement that the NZ Residents 16s and 18s teams will both play Australian sides at Toll Stadium on Monday, September 30.
The NZ Residents 16s play the Queensland Academy of Sport 16s, while the NZ Residents 18s meet the very strong Australian Schoolboys team.

Last October, on Australia’s Gold Coast, the NZ Residents 16s beat the Queensland Academy of Sport 16s by 28-26. The Kiwi side was captained by Northland’s Kadince Christensen, who has since joined the Parramatta Eels.

The NZ Residents 18s last met the Australian Schoolboys in 2011. The teams won a match each in a series played at Bruce Pulman Park in Papakura. The Australian side included future NRL players like David Klemmer (Canterbury Bulldogs) and Curtis Sironen (Wests Tigers). The Australian Schoolboys team has consistently been a stepping stone to the top, with its former players including Greg Inglis, Israel Folau and Feleti Mateo.

September 30 at Toll Stadium will be a celebration of rugby league, with a youth event at the events centre earlier in the day featuring an activities-based workshop looking at leadership, values and careers. Local youth can engage there with the NZRL, the NRL and local bodies such as NorthTec, while exploring pathways and opportunities through sport. They’ll also be able to stay on free-of-charge for the games.
