The NSW Waratahs and NSW Rugby Union are thrilled to announce a monumental expansion of their Regional Academy Program.
A third regional academy team is set to be established, comprising promising young rugby talent from the Hunter and Central Coast areas.
This exciting development marks the next chapter in the organisation's ongoing commitment to nurturing rugby excellence in regional New South Wales.
The Hunter and Central Coast areas, known for their rich rugby traditions, will unite to form the program's third regional academy team.
This strategic move recognises the depth of talent in these regions and reinforces the NSW Waratahs' dedication to providing opportunities for young players to grow and excel.
The upcoming rugby calendar is set to sizzle with anticipation as all three regional academy teams are gearing up to showcase their skills.
In January, Dubbo will be the battleground for these talented athletes, where they will compete against each other in thrilling matches that promise to deliver outstanding rugby action and a glimpse into the future of the sport.
"Paul Doorn, CEO of the NSW Waratahs, expressed, "The addition of the Hunter and Central Coast team is a momentous step in our quest to foster rugby excellence across regional New South Wales.
The Dubbo showcase will be an exciting opportunity for our athletes to prove their mettle and shine on the rugby stage."
This expansion underlines the NSW Waratahs' unwavering commitment to providing opportunities for regional players and promoting inclusivity within the sport.
With the addition of the Hunter and Central Coast teams, the program is poised to make a significant impact on the growth of rugby talent throughout the region.
As we edge closer to the Dubbo showcase, rugby enthusiasts, potential participants, and communities are encouraged to stay engaged and witness the burgeoning talent of regional New South Wales.
