The first Fraser Coast Falcons squad has been named

THE first 27-man Fraser Coast Falcons Development Squad has been named.

The squad is open to players aged 16 to 18, and includes players from three Fraser Coast clubs as well as some of South Burnett's best.

Fraser Coast's partnership with Sunshine Coast Falcons provides the first direct link between our local junior footballers and the NRL, thanks to the Falcons' partnership with Melbourne Storm.
