This past weekend saw the successful completion of the Under 20s Pathways Origin Camp at the NSWRL Centre of Excellence, Narrabeen.


Nearly forty of New South Wales brightest and most talented rugby league players converged on Sydneys northern beaches to be put through their paces in the hope that one day, many of them can go on to even higher honours.


NSWRL High Performance Manager, Wayne Portlock, was on hand for the camp and was suitably impressed by what he saw.


Most of the participants who attended the camp have been in our systems for some time now, beginning with our Harold Matthews Cup (Under 16) and SG Ball Cup (Under 18) competitions, Portlock said.


And a large number of them have already represented NSW in our various successful representative teams over the past few years, but to get them altogether under one roof and expose them to our coaching and high performance regime is a wonderful opportunity for all involved.


All of the participants took part in several on and off field sessions which took in everything from the physical side of the game to the mental aspect of things.


The players will now return to training with their NRL clubs and we will continue to monitor their progress through all grades and hopefully in 12-18 months time we will have the next Boyd Cordner on our hands who in the space of just over a year went from attending this camp, to captaining a winning NSW U20 Origin side to making his NSW Origin debut.


The next camps such as this to be held will be the Pathways Camp for the 16-18 years age bracket followed by the Blues in Waiting Camp [Open Age] in mid January and NSWRL Media will be on deck to bring you all of the news that comes out of those camps.
