Players turned up from far and wide for their chance to impress as the Vodafone Warriors’ open NYC trial at Whanganui’s famed Cooks Gardens on Sunday.
It was the first time the club had held an NYC trial outside Auckland.
Vodafone Warriors academy and pathways manager Duane Mann said there was strong regional representation with players gathering from as far afield as Australia, Invercargill, Dunedin and West Coast as well as Wellington, Palmerston North, New Plymouth, Hawera, Levin and Whanganui.
He also said the Mid Central Zone and local volunteers had provided excellent support in helping to run a full day of trials.
The Wanganui Chronicle attended to cover the trial.
