The ACT Brumbies will be hoping their junior results can transfer into the senior side after the under 12, 13 and 14 sides took out the NSW junior rugby state championships for their respective age groups on Sunday.

Under 14 captain Jonty Hromow said he was impressed with the playing standards during the tough tournament at Eastwood, Sydney.

''Our hardest game was probably the semi-final against the big Penrith boys, but a good win there got us pumped up for the final,'' Hromow said.

With the majority of the squad part of the side which lost last year's final to Gordon, a rematch was something they had dreamed of all year. ''We've got a couple of new players, but everyone has come back with lots more skills and determination to win it,'' Hromow said. It proved to be all the motivation needed, with Hromow leading ACT to an 8-5 victory.

The under 13s jagged a huge win over reigning premier Randwick, running away with a 32-5 triumph in wet conditions.

Captain Thomas Robertson said the score hardly reflected how close the game was.

''We had a few tough games in the pool, but played really well in the final,'' Robertson said.

''It was really tough in the wet, especially against last year's winners.''

Meanwhile, the under 12s completed a trifecta, winning a tight affair over Gordon 14-10.

''We've never had a result like this so its a really positive result going towards the future,'' Brumbies development officer Sam Ralph said.
