Deadly Blues: Indigenous league players tested
LEAGUE stars Mark O’meley, Ronny Gibbs, Nathan Blacklock and Tom Learoyd-lars put some Under 15s kids through their paces at Apex Oval during the school holidays.
As part of the NSWRL Deadly Blues Program, the four NRL players ran a series of skills drills and sessions focussed on health, education and personal development.
Each of the participants was then tested on their physical fitness and some recommendations were made for individual areas on which to work.
Chrystal Thompson and other NRL/ CRL Development Officers assisted throughout the day and will be on hand to guide these rising players throughout the next few months.
