Rising NRL stars including Luke Brooks and Mitchell Moses were 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 earlier today.

The young pair were 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.

Players from country NSW will travel from as far as the Riverina and Tamworth, with the program providing a greater opportunity to regional-based players. 

Newly appointed Blues assistant team manager Mark Donaldson also addressed the players.
