Junior Representative Squads Announced for 2013
Tuesday 29 January 2013 10:47 AM
The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs Rugby League Club held its 2013 Junior Representative Grading Night at Canterbury League Club on Monday night to announce its Harold Matthews Cup (Under16) and SG Ball Cup (Under 18) sides to contest the 2013 NSWRL Junior Representative competitions.
The fabulous evening was attended by members of our board including Chairman Ray Dib, Paul Dunn, Arthur Coorey and Anthony Elias, as well as Bulldogs CEO Todd Greenberg, NRL Head Coach Des Hasler, NRL Assistant Coach Kelly Egan, NYC Coach Andy Patmore, Club Captain Michael Ennis and Squad member (and local junior) Josh Reynolds. Michael and Josh presented the players with their 2013 gear bags and spoke to the audience about their experiences as Junior Reps players.
In addition to our two Junior Representative sides and as with last year, the Bulldogs have entered into an arrangement with the South West Sydney Academy of Sport (SWSAS) to field a side in the Harold Matthews Cup in 2013. The side will be made up of players from the Bulldogs and Western Suburbs Rugby League clubs. It allows us to effectively have another 13 quality player’s play in the Harold Matthews Cup competition that may have missed out on the Bulldogs Harold Matthews Cup squad and may otherwise have been limited to their junior league club side only.
It allows us to see an additional group of players through this development stage of their Rugby League careers, giving us an increased base of players to select from for the SG Ball Cup in the following years.
After an intensive 3 month training and trial period, the selectors, headed by Noel Cleal, Jim Whitney, Brad Henderson (SG Ball Coach) and Wayne Barnett (Harold Matthews Coach) have selected strong squads to contest the 2013 NSWRL Junior Representative competitions; which starts on Sunday February 10th, 2013 in our ‘Back to Belmore’ gala day of Rugby League, with the Harold Matthews Cup kicking off at 11:30am and the SG Ball Cup at 1:00pm against the Melbourne Storm.
