The Jetstar Gold Coast Titans’ Junior Pathways Program has been given another tick of approval with two of the club’s Harold Matthews representatives selected in a NSW Under-16s squad.

Titans’ under-16s players Sam Short (halfback) and Nicholas Crompton (prop) have been selected in the NSW Under-16 side for its annual clash against Queensland Under-16s.

This year’s match will be played prior to Game One of the Harvey Norman State of Origin series on Wednesday June 3, 2009 at Melbourne’s Etihad Stadium.

Short has played all his junior club football for Currumbin Tugun in the Gold Coast District Junior Rugby League and attends Palm Beach Currumbin High School, while Crompton is a product of the South Tweed junior club and attends St Joseph’s College, Banora Point.

Both played in the Titans’ Harold Matthews side which made the finals in their first season competing in the NSW-based junior competition earlier this year.
