“As expected, we’ve had some great numbers signing for the trials”, said Adam Hughes, RFL Education Manager.
“The regional teams will shortly be getting in touch with players to make arrangements for the trials and we’re excited to see what the players have to offer for the national side.”
“I’d like to encourage players who want to trial to make sure they are signed so that the regional management teams can get in touch with them so that they have all the details they need.”
