Final round to decide schoolboy premiers

IPSWICH State High School are just one step away from claiming their first Langer Trophy.

The pinnacle of the Brisbane Broncos Schoolboys Cup, the Opens competition features established rugby league nursery schools Keebra Park and Palm Beach Currumbin.

With one round to go, Ipswich are tied on points with Keebra Park but boast a greater point differential to lead the ladder.

"Tomorrow we play away to Wavell,” Ipswich SHS rugby league coach Lee Addison said.

"If we win and Keebra lose (against Marsden), or they win by 12 points less than us then we win the Langer Trophy.

"That would be a huge and amazing achievement.”

Ipswich are also performing well the Second Division Gee Shield.

Playing a local derby last week, St Peter Claver College slipped down to fourth position after a 20-10 loss to Redbank Plains State High School.

Second behind St Marys College Toowoomba, Redbank Plains are now two wins away from progressing to the Broncos Foxtel Competition.

"We are only one point behind St Marys and face Mountain Creek (today),” Redbank Plains Year 12 Coordinator Nick Faulkner said.

"If we win today and beat Beenleigh the following week we will go through.”

With the CISSA rugby league competition also kicking off this week at Karalee, the focus for St Peter Claver will now shift to the Second Division (Year 10) Devere Cup.

St Peter Claver face the last placed Lockyer District today at Cahill Park.

Currently in second place, a win today would set St Peter Claver up for a top of the table clash against St Marys at Brothers Ipswich next week.
