Newcastle Knights junior Kodi Crowther has been selected in this year’s Australian Secondary Schools Under 15s side.

The Ballina Coast High School student has been named in the number one jersey after his team took out the Australian Under 15s Championships at Wollongong on Friday.

The teen played fullback for NSW Combined High Schools which defeated Queensland White 16-14 in the Grand Final.

Crowther was one of three Knights in the premier side including Tyrone Bean and Lachlan Williams, both from Hunter Sports High.
