Broken Hill will continue to flex their junior representative football muscles this weekend with four players playing for the GWS Giants underage teams.

Central’s Harry Campbell and South’s Tyler McKenzie have been selected in the Under 17’s team while West’s Bailey Beattie and North’s Logan Berryman will line up in the Under 16s with both teams taking on the Sydney Swans Academy.

All four players sat out of their respective Under 18s games earlier this week with Campbell, McKenzie and Beattie also not playing last weekend for their club’s League sides of which they’ve become regular members of this season. Berryman did play for North against Central last Saturday.

Both matches take place tomorrow at Blacktown International Sports Park (BISP) Oval in Sydney with the Under 16s at 10am followed by the Under 17s at 12pm. 

This is the third game in a three-game series for the Under 16s all against the Sydney Swans Academy.

From these games a NSW/ACT Rams squad will be selected for the Under 16 National Championships.

Beattie played in the first game and while not selected for game two, has been recalled for game three. Berryman played in both game one and two.

The Giants team were belted in game one by 86 points but bounced back to narrowly win game two by just three points. Berryman starred with 20 possessions across half-forward in game two.

The Under 17s clash is a trial game to determine a NSW/ACT squad that will play against Vic Country and South Australia later this season. 

McKenzie, Campbell, Berryman and Beattie are all part of the local GWS Academy run by coaches Anthony Tidball, Jayden Kelly, Mat Garrick and Ayden Pettitt.
