TRL Mini Mods prove popular
The Taitokerau Rugby League organisation has continued its efforts to develop the 13-man game at age grade level across the Far North by running a series of mini modules during Term 4.
TRL Mini Mod events are being held on the Kaitaia College top fields on Thursdays after school for those aged 4-13, and Saturday mornings from 10am for ages 14-18.
TRL spokeswoman Jade Wikitera said the Thursday afternoon sessions have been averaging about 40 participants each night with the kids put through various drills and skills sessions.
The six-week series will be wrapped up with TRL selecting several rep teams to play in the Clash of the Titans competition against their Ngapuhi counterparts on Saturday, November 4.
Organisers will also be looking to capitalise on the momentum gained this year by running another weekly programme in Term 1 in 2019.
The ultimate goal is to get a sustainable youth league tournament up and running across the different age grades in the not-too distant future.
