Dear Central Coast Officials,
It gives me great pleasure to congratulate your zone and players (Adam Peruch, Lachlan Shelley and Kye Blair) on their selection into the U18 NSWJRU 1 Representative team.
This pathway has been developed to promote the game outside of the schools network and to provide representative opportunities for rugby players within the Colts system. The culmination of this pathway is for the NSWJRU 1 team to head to the Division 2 Nationals on the Gold Coast (6th July – 13th July) and give these players the chance to perform in from of Gen Blue talent scouts and selectors. We also thank Tim Rapp and Pat McCutcheon for their support of the club representative pathway.
The impact of this pathway has been minimal thus far – with any games or training for the SYDNEY U18 or NSWJRU U18s having nil to minimal impact on any club commitments.
Unfortunately the Division 2 Nationals will mean that the players must miss their club game on Saturday 7th July – and we thank your club for your support of these players to give them this opportunity.
Good luck with your season and please pass on our congratulations to all the players for gaining selection in a NSW Rep team. It is a fantastic achievement to get to represent your state – I am sure they will do us proud.
