UQ student selected for Australian Universities Rugby League team


Article from UQ's School of Human Movement Studies

The recent selection of third year Bachelor of Health, Sport and Physical Education student Liam Tyson to the Australian Universities Rugby League team is a reflection of the continuing partnership between The University of Queensland's School of Human Movement Studies (UQHMS) and Wavell State High School (SHS).

Liam graduated from Wavell State High School in 2009 and was a member of the school's Rugby League Excellence program. He credits the skills he learnt during this program with his continued success, both on and off the field.

"My five years at Wavell State High School obviously had a huge impact on where I am today. The years I spent being part of the Rugby League School of Excellence program were crucial to my development on the field and I can attribute my selection in the Universities Rugby League team to the skills I learnt at Wavell," said Liam.

"Coming to The University of Queensland has given me a terrific opportunity and it will be a great honour to represent Australia during the 2013 tour of Britain. It will be a great experience playing with and against some high quality football players. I am also excited about the prospect of travelling to Europe while finishing my last year of university," he said.
