Vodafone Warriors general manager football operations Dean Bell said the club was looking for players to compete for spots in the 2014 NYC squad.


This trial has become a fixture and it serves a great purpose for us, he said.


We encourage anyone who has excelled at club, school or representative level to register for the trial. This could provide an exciting opportunity.


Bell said the Vodafone Warriors extensive scouting network followed all levels of rugby league and rugby union competitions. The trial would allow staff to compare a number of players already on their radar as well as giving unidentified talent the chance to showcase their ability.


Due to the elite nature of the NYC competition combined with the huge interest we encounter in trialling for the Junior Warriors, we cant guarantee everyone who registers will have the opportunity to trial, said Bell.


Fitness and speed testing is planned on the day, so players should work hard to ensure it is at an acceptable level.
