Boys make Wide Bay

CHERBOURG'S Tyreese Gyemore and Triston Murray have grown up together under the common bond of rugby league.

The two Hornets under-12s juniors have played on the same team for the past six years and have formed a strong pairing on the field.

This combination will now be tested at the representative level as the duo prepares to make their Wide Bay debut.

The two 11-year-olds were recently selected to represent their region in the Wide Bay squad at next week's Vic Jensen Under-11 Schoolboy Carnival in Mackay.

The boys earned selection after recently starring for their respective school sides against South Burnett and Wide Bay competition.

Murray was selected at five eighth after excelling for Murgon State School, while Gyemore earnt a spot on the wing after a stand out performances for Cherbourg State School.

The Hornets juniors will be well and truly tested in next week's carnival when they take on the likes of junior strongholds such as Central Queensland, North-West Queensland, Ipswich, Sunshine Coast, Metro East and Mid West.

Jeffrey Dynevor has coached the newly selected Wide Bay reps since they first began playing together.

He explained the traits which helped the two juniors gain Wide Bay selection.

"They've got good talent and it's more speed for Tyreese and playmaking skills for Triston," he said.

Dynevor said the two boys had formed a great combination due to growing up playing together.

"They've played together most of their lives and have been playing in the same team since they were five," he said.

"They have a good combination going; you could even say they have a Thurston-Bowen like combination,

"Tyreese runs off Tristan a lot."
