Over 70 young men took their first step on their league pathway when they attended the RLN – NZRL Performance Camp.

The camp is used by RLN Northern Swords 15s (Joe Rau) and Swords 17s (Benson Selwyn) head coaches to help select their squads for the forthcoming NZRL National Provincial Championship.

The players were selected from the RLN Club 15s and 18s Competitions.  At the camp, players were run through a series of physical and skill tests and then a number of workshops including sessions about pathways to the NRL, decision making, player agents and goal setting.

“It’s a competitive world out there and not many boys will get to the NRL, the boys need to understand that they are the ones who are in control of their future, they also need to ensure that they have a plan B”, said Warrior Legend Stacey Jones.

“Northland produces some great players – the Warriors see Rugby League Northland as a future partner and we will announce an exciting partnership soon,” Jones went on to say.

The next step for the Swords 15s and 17s will see both Squads travel to Rotorua on the 15th of July for the Upper Central Zone two day tournament.
