Jon Ellis, coaching and performance manager for Wales Rugby League, said: “This is a mid-way point for the Players to Leaders programme at age groups under 14s, 15s and u16s with an additional senior Origin clash wrapping up what will be a fantastic day of Rugby league in the heart of West Wales.

 

“People in the peninsula are starting to appreciate the drama of a Rugby League game and I'm sure we will have a great crowd in castle Stebo. I really can't wait for the event.”

 

WRL National Development Manager Idris Evans added: “This is going to be a wonderful day of Rugby League and will showcase all the hard work the players and coaches have been putting into this programme week in week out since October last year.  Players have been picked up from their clubs as well as from the schools competition and to bring this many talented players together today brings a real opportunity for development of our players within the game in Wales and to showcase their skill at Stebonheath Park.”
