NSW Legends to Mentor Young Stars
Rising NRL stars including Luke Brooks, Mitchell Moses and Bevan French have been hand-picked to take part in a specialist pathways program under the guidance of NSW True Blues legends Brad Fittler, Andrew Johns, Danny Buderus, Anthony Minichiello and Mark O’Meley at ANZ Stadium tomorrow (Wednesday, 21 December).
The young trio will be joined by more than 40 of the state’s most promising talents ranging from 14-22 years of age, including five country-based players, in a program designed to help guide the next generation of Blues players through position-specific sessions.
The session will have a strong focus on halves and hookers, with Johns and Fittler to mentor the No.6 and 7 contenders, while Buderus will run skill sessions for the hookers.
Players from country NSW will travel from as far as the Riverina and Tamworth, with the program providing a greater opportunity to regionally based players.
Newly appointed Blues assistant team manager Mark Donaldson will also address the players.
