Together with the Country Rugby League (CRL) and the Central Coast Rugby League (CCRL), the Sydney Roosters have announced the renewal of a joint partnership which will ensure a genuine pathway to the NRL for aspiring junior rugby league players.
Now in its fifth year, such has been the success of the partnership, that all parties have agreed to a perpetual ongoing relationship.
“We are delighted to consolidate this partnership with the Country Rugby League and the Central Coast Rugby League, which will ensure the provision of a genuine pathway to the NRL for aspiring junior rugby league players on the Central Coast,” said Roosters CEO Joe Kelly.
The announcement was made earlier this week at the new Central Coast Roosters High Performance Centre which is based at Tuggerah Lakes Secondary College The Entrance Campus.
The facility, which is a joint venture between all parties, will house all the Central Coast Roosters Junior Representative teams, and features refurbished fields, a gym and meeting rooms.
“This new facility is another key development in the growing pathway for aspiring Central Coast junior rugby league players, and one of which we are all incredibly proud,” said Mr Kelly.
In attendance at the announcement were CRL CEO Terry Quinn, Tuggerah Lakes Secondary College Principal Dr David Cullen and Roosters Director Brien Samphier.
