RUGBY UNION

BOWRAL teenager Oscar Moran has enjoyed a rapid rise in rugby union.

Earlier this year, the 14-year-old undertook his first trial for a representative team.

This weekend, Oscar will represent the NSW Under-15s Country squad at a major state competition.

Oscar, who plays at loose head prop, will head to Narrabeen on Wednesday to meet team mates and take part in a three-day camp.

The team will compete against another country side and four city outfits in Narrabeen on the weekend.

Oscar’s mum Nicky Moran said the top players at the carnival would be picked for the NSW under-15s team.

“It’s Oscar’s first rep opportunity and he loves his rugby,” she said.

2015 has already been a big year for the young Bowral Blacks player. The journey started in January when he represented the Illawarra Junior Gold team at a pre-season competition.

He then represented the Illawarra under-15s team at the State Country Champion-ship in Mudgee last month.

Oscar played well at the championship and was elevated to the NSW Country side.

In between rep duties, Oscar has played at under-15s level for the Bowral Blacks and Oxley College.

Ms Moran said her son took up the sport at six because his father Scott and brothers Max and Zac had played.

“Oscar has learnt so much this year,” she said.

“He has improved his technique and enjoyed the opportunities.”
