In his new role as a development officer, True Blues Alumni Brad Fittler has the job of hunting the finest young talent across New South Wales.

His duty is to ensure young kids are provided with the best pathway to reach their full potential.

“We’re now in the middle of starting to go through the process of picking state 16s and 18s teams. There’s a bit of pressure because we’ve done so well,” Fittler said.

“The key to my role is to make sure that we’re seeing that in the Origin competition. If we’re winning the 16s and 18s, in ten years time we should be winning the big games as well.”
