NSW have started strongly at the National Youth 7s tournament on the Sunshine Coast, notching 13 wins, 1 draw and a loss across 15 matches in all divisions.

Our Youth Girls sit atop groups A and B respectively and the Youth Boys are at the top of their pools, with NSW 2 only bettered on points difference by QLD 2 following a thrilling 24-all draw earlier in the day.

The tries have been shared amongst the Youth Boys squad, with Ben Dowling and Charles Worthington scoring plenty of points.
