PSM Rugby League Combine 2020
Pacific Sports Management is proud to announce the PSM Rugby League Combine is back on the Gold Coast in 2020.
All you need to do is register now; download the information pack and turn up prepared to give your very best effort.
You will have the opportunity to showcase your ability to NRL clubs and State League clubs.
PSM has studied the NFL Combine and modified it to suit Rugby League. Unlike normal rugby league trials, where everything comes down to how you perform in a one-off game that can be highly affected by the performances of other participants, the Combine provides the player three opportunities to showcase their talents to the scouts over two days. (Testing Day / Trial Game).
On arrival each athlete will register, then be presented their squad number, training gear and directed to either the U15’s / U16's / U18's or NRL (Opens) group.
The groups will then be put through the following testing stages over the course of the first day with all information made instantly available to all club representatives.
- Physical / Athleticism
- Attack (Skills)
The athletes will be required to pass the targeted fitness requirements outlined within the information pack. Those who don't will then only progress to the trial game on day two (2) if they perform within the final testing sections (defence or attack) and receive a wildcard from either an NRL club scout or a PSM representative.
Numbers are limited and those who registered first will secure their place within the Rugby League Combine.
U15s Group - Age Restrictions - 15 years of age. U16’s Group – Age Restrictions - 16 years of age. U18’s Group – Age Restrictions - 17 - 18 years of age. (Opens) Group – Age Restrictions - 19+ years of age.
Location - RACV Royal Pines is located at Ross Street, Benowa QLD 4217.
