From Matt Russell at FoxSports via NRL.com.

Some excerpts:

Club championship... and three from three.

Well done to the Warriors Under 20's, who sealed the New Zealander's first club championship by beating Parramatta.

It was a commanding performance from a team who dedicated the victory to the people of Christchurch, who were rocked by an earthquake earlier in the morning.

The Warriors and Raiders are the only clubs to have teams make the Toyota Cup finals every year, since it started in 2008.

Players can compete in the Toyota Cup finals if they have played the majority (or same amount) of games in a second tier competition when compared to NRL.

A second tier competition is the Toyota Cup, NSW Cup or Queensland Cup.

The Warriors Bill Tupou has played most of his games in the NRL this year but is eligible for the 20's because his NRL is still alive.

If the Warriors are eliminated or earn a week off in the NRL, Bill won't be able to play Toyota Cup.

As soon as he plays two Toyota Cup finals, the fortunes of the NRL team become irrelevant.

From next season, players will have had to have turned 17 to play in the Toyota Cup.

Players in the 2010 Toyota Cup Team of the Year are set to receive another boost.

It's understood they will be named as the Junior Kangaroos to play the Junior Kiwis.

Four positions will have to be filled, as four Kiwis made the Team of the Year.

The honour will even be extended to Coach of the Year Andy Patmore, who now becomes the Junior Kangaroos mentor.

Is Junior Kangaroos different to Aussie School Boys? Is it different ages?

Aside from Billy, this also explains why Joe Mua debuted last week. I believe he's only played for the Vulcans once, so Round 26 made him finals eligible.

The thing that irks me about Tupou is his suss defence, he can't really execute the coffee book tackles.

Anyone with coffee book shaped tackle is suss in general, let alone their defence. And don't get me started on executing them. People pay good money for that.

Yes. Juniour Kangaroos is picked from club level, so esentially the best in the country. Aussie School Boys is picked solely from the school age competitions such as Australian Catholic Schools vs Australian State Schools. Most of the best academic schools in Australia don't play League at all a lot of other boarding schools only allow Rugby Union and there are a lot of League players at these schools that miss out on ever playing schoolboys League. However, if those same players excel for their club on the weekend they will likely make rep sides like QLD/NSW merit or Toyota Cup and from here are picked for the Junior Kangaroos.

Well actually that's Rugby School boys. 90% of the League playing schools are all public blue coller schools. Like Keebra Park, Endevour sports high etc.
