LIVE STREAM TODAY: Gladstone players to be in action today
RUGBY LEAGUE: Former Gladstone Valleys player Jackson Warde and Gladstone Brothers product Carsen Huth will line up for The Cathedral College in the Aaron Payne Cup today at 9am against Ignatius Park in Mackay.
There will be live streaming of all Aaron Payne Cup games on The Observer website.
TCC coach Mick Busby said this morning's game will be up another level.
"That will be a hard game, but it's good for the boys to come up against a team like that and see just where they're at," he said.
"If we cut out mistakes and be disciplined, you never know what can happen."
The Cathedral College have reached the top-four and semi-final stage after a 24-10 win against Mackay yesterday.
TCC had a fast start and scored early in the game, but it was still anyone's at half-time with TCC leading by one try.
Busby said he was delighted with the outcome.
He said Riley Boaza, Darcy Hancock, Thallon Peters and Jeremy McLaughin as his team's best.

TCC coach Mick Busby was excited what the pair will offer as his team will meet Mackay at 4.15pm today and Ignatious Park on tomorrow at 9am.
"Jackson was always thereabouts and he is an outstanding player and an explosive player," Busby said.
Warde played with the Queensland Indigenous under-16 side and has also been selected Crows side after an impressive showing for CQ Capras in Bundaberg.
Warde replaces centre Brayden Duffy, who suffered a foot injury at the Central Junior Carnival in Bundy at the weekend.
"Jackson plays in the centres as does Carsen who is also very quick," Busby said.
"We would love to get the ball into Jackson's hands."
Busby said TCC need to win this afternoon to guarantee a top-four spot.
"It will be a tough game and I'm excited with what Jack Warde can do and he has the same bloodlines as Ben Barba," Busby said.
