Roosters Partnership with Mabel Park SHS Continues to Thrive

The Sydney Roosters are delighted to announce that the Club has extended its partnership with Mabel Park State High School until the end of 2027.

As the search for emerging talent continues, Head of Pathways Blake Cavallaro has established a strong connection between the Club and the Logan City-based school, with NRLW stars Keilee Joseph and Otesa Pule proud products of the affiliation.

The partnership started in 2020, when Joseph flew from Queensland to Sydney each week to participate in the Roosters Tarsha Gale program, where Mabel Park SHS worked with Cavallaro to ensure the rising star met her academic requirements while pursuing a professional football career.
