Some things to think about before applying. Are you registered to a Hunter junior rugby league club in 2023? Have you been playing rugby league for several years? For the 12 years, did you take part in the 11 years trials? Are you consistently one of the better players in your club side? Does your coach acknowledge your strong performances throughout the season? Have you previously received end of year club awards such as best and fairest, best back or best forward? These are indicators that your child may be suitable to trial.
