FOUR Port Curtis teams will vie for positions on Capricornia secondary school teams in touch football trials being held at Briffney Creek on Tuesday.

The Port Curtis under-15s and open school boys and school girls teams will face Mackay, Rockhampton and Central Highlands.

Convenor Mark Davis said a position on the Capricornia team would see players go to state championships.

Two Gladstone touch footballers hoping to do well on Tuesday are Justin Cridland and Isobelle Collocott.

Justin, who has made the Capricornia Secondary School touch team before, said it was one of his goals because you had to make the Capricornia team to be eligible for the Queensland team.

The 16-year-old said Rockhampton was always a tough team to play.

"It's always a good game against them," Justin said.

Isobelle, who has trialled before but is yet to make the Capricornia Schools team said she would like to make the side.

"It would be a good experience to go away and play at a high level," Isobelle said.

"It's just better to play at a higher level. You learn more."
