Mundine to miss match

THE withdrawal of Old Bar centre Kyle Mundine and the subsequent inclusion of Wingham utility Matt Bridge means all seven Group Three Rugby League first grade clubs will have players in tomorrow's representative side to meet Group 14 at Moree.

Premiers Wauchope, with five, has the most. Port Sharks, Port City and Wingham all have one Bridge from Wingham, fellow interchange player Kurt Maloney from the Sharks and prop Mitch Fowler from the Breakers.

Group secretary Barrie Smith pointed out the average age of the side is 23 , making it the youngest to ever represent the group. Lock Matt Finlayson at 31 is the veteran, with Bridge and second rower Matt Bird, both 20, the youngest.

The squad is: Kurt Lewis (Forster-Tuncurry); Sam Watts (Wauchope), Beau White (Wauchope), Tim Alliston (Taree City), Kyle McGregor (Forster-Tuncurry); Todd Bridge (Taree City), Byram Stewart (Forster-Tuncurry); Matt Finlayson (Wauchope), Matt Bird (Wauchope), Kyle Cochrane (Old Bar), Chris Trembath (Wauchope, captain), Dean Hurrell (Wauchope), Mitch Fowler (Port City).

Interchange: Kurt Maloney (Port Macquarie), Josh Pearsall (Old Bar), Jordan Galloway (Wauchope), Matt Bridge (Wingham).
