A DOMINANT display in all three age groups saw the Gladstone Raiders produce another 14 CQ Capras junior representatives, after the weekend's trials in Emerald.

With sides from under-13s, U14s and U16s all making the trip up last Friday, there were a number of standout performers in all three teams.

Despite the three sides all failing to topple Rockhampton, they were able to all beat their respective Central West and Central Highlands opponents.

Seven players from the U13s were picked for the Capras, including Caleb Baker.

Caleb was named player of the carnival for his particular age group.

Gladstone U13s coach Andrew Murdoch was full of praise for the committed, young athletes.

"Yeah, I'm very happy. We were hoping for about six or seven selections based on our performance against Rockhampton (a narrow 22-18 loss)," Murdoch said.

Murdoch said the behaviour and attitude, both on and off the footy field, had been exceptional all weekend from the region's future stars.
