RUGBY LEAGUE: The Border Bushrangers under-18 side celebrated the end of its season at the Border Rugby League awards presentation and 20th anniversary dinner.

The dinner was held at the International Club at Stanthorpe.

Awards were handed out to the players for their continued efforts throughout the season.

The coach's award went to Braden Carmody from the Stanthorpe Gremlins.

Bushrangers coach Peter Brannigan said Carmody was the most deserving of the award.

"He's a bloke every coach wants on the field, just one of the best defensive players I've seen. He really deserved it,” he said.

Brannigan said he was proud of all of the boys for their efforts.

"As far as the awards go, it was really good to see the boys getting recognised for what they did through the year,” he said.

All of the players who won awards for the season are eligible to play in the team again next year.

"It would be good to see the boys back in 2017,” Brannigan said.

As this was the first season for the team, Brannigan said he was impressed by the way the boys had played and thanked the BRL for its support.

"I was just really happy that the BRL were able to gift the boys their jerseys for their first season,” he said.

"I felt really proud of the way they played all year, especially for the first year.”

The Bushrangers side was one of three new teams in the Toowoomba Rugby League under-18 competition this season.

The other two represented the South Burnett area.
