JU­NIOR RUGBY LEAGUE

MORE than 200 lo­cal play­ers signed on for the 2014 sea­son with the Proser­pine Whit­sun­day Ju­nior Rugby League Club on Satur­day.

The club is field­ing teams from the un­der-6s through to the un­der-16s, with many play­ers en­joy­ing the giant in­flat­able wa­ter­slide and sausage siz­zle on the day.

Club pres­i­dent Kevin Young was pleased with the turnout, de­spite the poor weather.

“The draw is still be­ing made but we will po­ten­tially have nine dif­fer­ent clubs from the Mackay re­gion in the draw,” he said.

“The kids are itch­ing to get back on the field af­ter a cou­ple of months off over the school hol­i­days.”

The first match of the year will be held in Mackay on Satur­day, March 22, with the first home game to be played at the Kelsey Creek Sport­ing Com­plex in Proser­pine on Satur­day, March 29.

Train­ing started on Tues­day this week for all age groups.

Young said the un­der-6s would start train­ing at a later date for their 10 week sea­son.

“A lot of our un­der-16s play­ers from last year have now pro­gressed to the se­nior Brah­mans and we wish them all good luck,” he said.

“We have a very close re­la­tion­ship with the se­nior club and it’s great to see our young stars ris­ing through the ranks.” For more in­for­ma­tion, like the club’s Face­book page at www.face­book.com/groups/pwjrl.
