The Border Rugby League Bushrangers won the South West Carnival at Miles on Saturday, their first carnival victory in recent years.

In the first game, Roma and District beat Western Ringers 50-0.

Border then beat Western Ringers 24-18 and backed up to beat Roma and Districts 28-16.

Captain-coach Brent Osborne said the best two Border players at the carnival on Saturday were lock Jamie Meddings and hooker Jamie Watts.

"This year we only had two players pull out of the selected team so we weren't disrupted like in other years. As soon as we got together for a training run in Inglewood on Friday night we gelled as a team,” Osborne said.

"There was a commitment to show the strength of the Border Rugby League as plenty of people outside of the BRL have been bagging our league and the criticism is getting worse.

"We beat a strong rugby league area like Roma and District after playing back to back games at the carnival so we hope the BRL critics will now offer us the support we deserve.”

Inglewood trio Brent Osborne, Brent Hearne and Jamie Meddings made the South West team along with Killarney players Ian Brown, Jamie Watts and Brett Watts.

Jake Charles is a shadow player for the open South West team and Brandon Sauverain made the U20 South West team.

South West will now play in the 47th Battalion Carnival at Yeppoon at the end of April.

The team will then go to Ilfracombe for the Outback carnival in the middle of the season.
