THREE Clarence Valley rugby union players, Seb Dalton, Rohan Hardy and Dan Randall, have been selected in the Australian Aboriginal Under-16 team.

The trio won selection after representing the NSW Lloyd McDermott Aboriginal side that contested the Australian titles at Runaway Bay, Queensland.

The tournament was the fifth stage of selection criteria involving hundreds of players.

In September the national Aboriginal Under-16 team is scheduled to tour New Zealand for a series of matches.

Cousins Dalton and Hardy attend South Grafton High and Randall, Maclean High.

Apart from their ability at rugby union, the trio have also gained numerous representative honours in rugby league.

Randall plays first grade with the South Grafton Rebels.

"It was great news getting selected for the Australian Aboriginal side," Randall said. "The tour should be good. Heaps of fun."

South Grafton High started with nine representatives in the zone stage of selection and had five players involved in the NSW Lloyd McDermott Aboriginal team at the Australian titles.

Gaining selection in the Australian Aboriginal Under-16 team is a marvellous achievement for the star junior footballers.
