Latrel Mitchell The Australian Schoolboys have edged out their England Academy counterparts 22-18 in the first match of their 2014 Autumn International Academy Series.

In-form Roosters Holden Cup fullback Latrell Mitchell continued his try-scoring spree of the Schoolboys' English tour with two first-half tries, first through a long-range intercept and then with a strong finish close to the line despite the attention of several defenders.

Mitchell's double and an early try to Tevita Cottrell gave the Australians the early ascendancy, before the England Academy hit back through Oliver Davies before half-time.

The hosts closed the gap with a try to Oliver Gildart early in the second term before the Aussie Schoolboys edged clear again, with Brock Lamb setting up a try for a diving Tyrell Fuiaomano.

The England Academy finished strongly with further tries to Gildart and Jordan Adbul, but in the end it was Lamb's goalkicking that made the difference - with the Australian landing three conversions to the England Academy's one.

The teams will face off in another Test match before the Australian Schoolboys conclude their tour with a clash against a France under-19s team in Perpignan.

Australian Schoolboys 22 (Latrell Mitchell 2, Tevita Smith Cottrell, Tyrell Fuimaono tries; Brock Lamb 3 goals) def England Academy 18 (Oliver Gildart 2, Oliver Davies, Jordan Abdul tries; Abdul goal) at Leigh Sports Village.

Please meet talented half/five-eighth Christian Hazard who joined the iSelect Titans this year from South Sydney but is intially from Taree in NSW. He talks about the injury he has been fighting since being hurt in the NRL side's pre-season match against the Warriors in Auckland, and his background.

Latrell Mitchell

lmitchell.png, 47kBIn a game that had everything it was only fitting that this grand finale would have a Hollywood ending and Latrell Mitchell would be the hero for the Roosters and the villain for the Panthers.
They say 'cometh the hour, cometh the man' and man of the match and of the hour Mitchell did just that cutting back inside off his right foot ten metres out in the 74th minute and getting down low to dive over for his 16th try of the season and next to the posts for the match winner.
Mitchell was instantly mobbed by his teammates as they piled on top of him under the posts to celebrate a greater grand final comeback than the Roosters first grade side did against Manly in last year's NRL decider.
The celebrations continued after the siren as Roosters coach Anthony Barnes was dunked with Gatorade by his happy players.

The S. G. Ball Cup is a junior rugby league football competition played in New South Wales, played between teams made up of players aged under 18.
The competition is administered by the New South Wales Rugby League. The competition includes both junior representative teams of NRL and NSW Cup clubs that do not field a team in the NRL competition.
In 2009 the Melbourne Storm from Victoria, was admitted to the competition. In 2010 the competition continued its national growth with the introduction of the WA Reds from Perth.
The S. G. Ball Cup is so named after S. G. "George" Ball, one of the five people responsible for the formation of South Sydney and was club secretary for over fifty years.
