The Australian Secondary Schools Rugby League 18 Years Championships will be held in Cairns, Queensland, commencing Sunday 7th July and ending on Friday 12th July with Finals day, and the announcement of the Australian Schoolboys team to tour New Zealand in late September and early October. Already, by mid May 2013, two boys from last year's Australian Schoolboys team who defeated the England Academy have made their NRL debuts, with signs that there are more to come. This is again indicative of the standard of play at this event, and exemplifies the role that ASSRL plays in NRL Pathways.
The organisation of teams into pools for establishing the draw has changed in 2013, after decisions made by the ASSRL Council at the biennial conference last November, and thus the draw will have a different look, for those who are regular followers of our Championships.The draw is below.
