Talented young sportsman adds NSW captain to achievements

MULLUMBIMBY rugby league player Jed Edwards can add NSW captain to his list of achievements.

Edwards captained the NSW under-12s team at the National Primary School Rugby League titles in Perth.

NSW finished second after going down 28-6 against Queensland in the final.

"It was a level above any competition I have played in," Jed said.

"It gave me the opportunity to test my skills against the best primary school rugby league players in Australia."

NSW had wins against Western Australia, ACT, Victoria and Northern Territory.

Edwards is also the captain of Mullumbimby Public School.

"It's a massive achievement and the pinnacle of what a student can do in school sport," Principal David Lees said.

"Jed's real strength has always been his leadership and he inspires people around him.

"Mullumbimby has a long history of producing talented rugby league players and Jed is no different."

Jed was also the North Coast captain playing hooker at the state titles in June.

Lees said rugby league isn't the only thing Jed is talented in.

"He has that natural ability when it comes to sport and he is strong academically as well," Lees said.

"Whether it's in cricket, soccer, rugby league or here at school he leads by example."
