Panthers developing talent in Dubbo
Panthers continued its commitment to rugby league development in western NSW by running a clinic in Dubbo during the first week of the school holidays.
The purpose of the clinic was to engage with the Under-13s and Under-14s representative teams from Group 11 as they prepared for upcoming Country Championship games.
All participating players were given Panthers training apparel, highlighting the ongoing support of our club's corporate partners for our programs in western NSW.
The session was held at Dubbo's Caltex Field and was well-supported by the NRL Game Development office in Dubbo, and local club and school coaches.
One of those coaches was Andy Haycock, who has been instrumental in the establishment of the Panthers regional academy at St Johns College, Dubbo, this year.
The clinic concluded with the presentation of Panthers backpacks to two players identified by their local coaches as being outstanding examples of the outcomes being achieved in the Group 11 program.
Panthers extends its sincere congratulations to Daniel Kennedy and Rory Quarmby, who both play for Nyngan Tigers.
Academy Coach Sam Jones was on hand to present the awards to the players on the day.
Panthers would also like to thank Wayne Hill and Dave Elvy from the NRL for their help and support on the day.
