FORMER Alstonville High School student Paul Carter will play his third game in the NRL with the Gold Coast Titans on Sunday.

Carter has been impressive since making his debut off the bench in the first round of the competition.

A Marist Brothers junior, Carter completed most of his senior schooling in Alstonville before finishing at Homebush Boys High School in Sydney.

Carter is the only Alstonville High School student to represent Australian Schoolboys in rugby league and water polo.

The 21-year-old moved to the Gold Coast late last year after inking a two-year deal with the Titans.

He had spent the previous three years with the Canterbury Bulldogs and was a top performer in the National Youth Competition.

"I'm still close with a lot of mates from Alstonville and lot them live on the Gold Coast now," Carter said at the time.

"But the main thing (about signing with Titans) is definitely a better opportunity to play first grade."

Carter was behind a monster forward pack at the Bulldogs with the most having represented Australia, England or New Zealand.

Meanwhile, Ballina junior Mitchell Aubusson will look for more of the same when the Sydney Roosters take on the Brisbane Broncos tomorrow night.

Aubusson scored two tries in a 56-4 thrashing of the Eels last weekend.

The performance certainly hasn't hurt his chances of a State of Origin side call-up for the Blues.

Lismore-born Martin Kennedy will get the chance to go up against his former club for the first time when he runs out for the Broncos.

Kennedy played at the Roosters for five years and was overlooked for a spot in the 2013 premiership-winning grand final game.

Ballina junior Tyrone Roberts has a big third round ahead with the prospect of the Knights losing their first three games of the season.

Roberts will steer the Newcastle ship at halfback as they look to take down an in-form Melbourne Storm at AAMI Park in Melbourne on Monday night.
