The Sydney Roosters have today announced a new long-term partnership with the Country Rugby League (CRL) which will increase the Club's on-going commitment to the Central Coast.
A key component of this new partnership has been the formation of an agreement with Tuggerah Lakes Secondary College which will provide a first-class training field and facility for the thousands of participants in the Central Coast Junior Rugby League.
"The Roosters have had a strong presence on the Central Coast for a number of years now, and our commitment to increasing this engagement throughout the region has been unwavering," said Easts Group CEO Scott Bennetts.
"The Central Coast represents the third-largest game participation in the State and has a strong network of rugby league support, so we are delighted to enter into this partnership with the CRL and Tuggerah Lakes Secondary College, which will ensure that the region's junior rugby league participants have access to first class training facilities and a genuine, uninterrupted pathway to the NRL.
"We also wish to acknowledge the Wyong Rugby League Club Group who have made a significant contribution to this project to ensure the continuation of a pathway for junior rugby league players on the Central Coast," he added.
