WINNING the National Touch Championships in Brisbane- what "Moore" could Queensland want?
Aaron Moore was selected in the Queensland Primary School's Touch Football under-12 team to compete at the national titles in Brisbane recently.
Queensland was the clear favourite throughout the carnival, winning all their games by a convincing margin.
St Patrick's School principal Max Martin said there were quite a number of teams as all states except Victoria and Western Australia were represented at the carnival.
"The least score margin was 10 tries to five against the Northern Territory," Martin said.
"The game against Tasmania was the highest- scoring game 24 to nil."
Queensland easily progressed to the grand final and in a touch football State of Origin showdown, took on New South Wales for championship bragging rights.
Queensland beat New South Wales 14-4 and Moore played an important role, scoring three tries in the final.
The St Patrick's School student is in Year 6.
Martin said he still had another year for selection in the state side.
The young player is already intent on improving his game. He attended a two-day training camp in Brisbane in the September school holidays then a three-day training camp prior to the nationals.
Moore plays in the local senior competition and has proven to be a valuable touch player within recent weeks, as an integral part of the St Patrick's team boys' A-side that won the Queensland All Schools' Championships.
The Most Valuable Player award went to Moore at the championships as the team faced tough teams from around Queensland and beat Birkdale State School 5-3 in the grand final.
