JUNIOR rugby league teams - The Rhys Wesser Super 9s Shield needs you.

Organisers are calling for clubs throughout the Central Highlands to get an under-14 team together and nominate for the competition.

Carnival co-ordinator Michael Fletcher said nomination forms were available from the QRL website.

"We are looking for teams to have a look and enter the competition," he said.

"It's a fairly new carnival so we are trying to expand with teams who enter."

The shield, which celebrates the career of Rhys Wesser, will be held on April 11-12 in Rockhampton at Victoria Park, and is a modified nine-a-side competition of 15 players played over two nine-minute halves.

Last year Dysart and Middlemount combined a team and Fletcher encouraged other towns who couldn't nominate a full team to follow suit.

Nominations close on February 28. Phone Michael Fletcher on 0428 113 148 or email bridget2707@westnet .com.au for information.
