Wales Rugby League are looking for their next batch of future stars and are holding trials for the under 16 schoolboys side at Croesyceiliog Comprehensive School in Cwmbran on Saturday 5th February from 12pm.
The Wales Schoolboys side celebrates its tenth anniversary this year, having kicked off with a massive 84-0 win over Scotland in 2001.
Since then they have produced Super League and Welsh international players like Ben Flower and Gil Dudson as well as up and coming stars like Dafydd Carter and Rhodri Lloyd who both made their full Wales international debut last October.
The trial on Saturday 5th February is open to any 16-year old, whether or not they have played Rugby League in the past. Players are to arrive at 12pm to register, the trial will begin at 12.30pm and will finish by 3pm.
The players who are successful will be considered for selection for Wales under 16s who will take on England on Friday 22nd April at a venue in South Wales.
Dan Clements, the Head of Performance for Wales Rugby League said: "These trials have been very successful in the past and we have uncovered a lot of good players. This could be a player's first step on the road to future senior international honours and Super League so it's a trial that is well worth attending. We're also pleased to see the return of the Good Friday international match against England. This has proved very popular in the past with a lot of close encounters."
Players need to submit an application form before the day and must return it via email to email@example.com by Thursday 3rd February. Click here to download the application form.
