The NSWRL is set to ramp up efforts aimed at regaining their superiority on a state level, with up and coming young players, including eight from the Sharks, to undergo a specialist positional coaching program.
To be headed up by Performance Development Coach Brad Fittler and held on Wednesday, December 21, the focus on the day will be about communicating ways to be better trainers and team members and in reinforcing the basics of the game.
Fittler will be joined by a collection of some of the best player to have represented NSW, with Andrew Johns, Danny Buderus, Anthony Minichiello and Mark O’Meley to offer their advice and rugby league knowledge.
Mark Donaldson VC will attend the day as a guest speaker.
The young Sharks invited to participate range from NRL squad member Jayden Brailey, to his brohter Blayke Brailey and Kyle Flanagan from the NYC, SG Ball players Bronson Xerri, Isaac Longmuir and Luke Metcalf, as well as Douglas Levi and Thomas De Meio from the Sharks Harold Matthews Cup team.
The coaching session will run for a period of four hours and be held at ANZ Stadium.
All players are well into their pre-season preparations, with the Brailey brothers and Flanagan currently with the NRL squad, while the Sharks junior reps have been hard at work for the best part of a month.
