NATIONAL STAGE: Nic Andrews will represent NSW Combined Independent Schools at the Australian schoolboys league titles.Hunter Valley Grammar School student Nic Andrews will fly the Maitland rugby league flag at the Australian Schoolboys Championships being held in Port Macquarie from Sunday.
The talented teenager will be part of the NSW Combined Independent Schools (CIS) squad taking on the country’s best under-18 rugby league players at the annual week-long tournament.
Andrews, despite coming from a rugby union background, is no stranger to the national rugby league stage having participated in the under-15 version of the competition two years ago.
This time around the year 11 student will be up against more senior players, being aged just 16, but previous experience at this representative level will hold him in good stead.
The NSW CIS outfit play ACT in their opening encounter on Sunday before facing off against Combined Association Schools on Monday.
This completes the preliminary rounds before finals are played out from Wednesday to Friday.
The under-15 Australian Schoolboys Championships were held in Darwin last month and All Saints College students Brock Lamb and Jayden Butterfield helped NSW Combined Catholic Colleges to a 41-32 victory in the final.
