Kangaroos Training

The Four Nations may make for what has already been a long season for representative players, but it also presents opportunities for those in the wider rugby league community to see the elite players from across four distinct, proud nations doing what they do best on the world stage.

One such opportunity presented itself last week, with staff from Keebra Park invited to Kangaroos training at Suncorp Stadium, where they were able to network and learn from the training and management staff of the National team.

It was a welcome break for Junior development co-ordinator Jade Hounsell (pictured with Cooper Cronk and Greg Inglis) who’s has been hard at work over the past 9 months with the various development days and grade 7/8 activities run at the school.

“Attending this session has been a very worthwhile experience, and one where we were able to pick up invaluable coaching experience from the very best in the industry,” Hounsell said.  “We like to keep at the forefront of schoolboy rugby league and it is through opportunities such as this, that many connections are made and much knowledge and experience is gained.”

Keebra Park graduates are among those in this year’s competition, with Issac Liu and Sam Moa donning the Blue and White of Samoa, while Greg Eastwood and Bodene Thompson will be representing the Kiwis.

Keebra Park’s next development day is on at the school on the 13th November and is open to all boys considering joining the program.
