The RLJD2 competition kicks off this weekend, marking the fifth season for the Rugby League Jamaica expansion competition.
Spanish Town High proved once more that they are the number one U19 rugby league high school in Jamaica, after a dramatic 14-12 win over St. Catherine High in the Grand Final.
St. Catherine High led 12-10 with seven minutes remaining but a brilliant chip kick from Spanish Town's Adrian Christie found winger Rameish Smith in space who reached over in the right hand corner to seal an emotional win.
Jamaica is preparing to play a first-ever international at home next month, 13 years after the sport was introduced to the Caribbean nation.
