Five Manly Warringah Sea Eagles players have been named in the NSW Future Blues squad.
Haumole Olakau’atu, Josh Schuster, Jason Saab, and rising junior rep players Roy Quiroz-Mapusua and Latu Fainu will attend a training camp at the NSWRL Centre of Excellence on Sunday 12 December.
All but Saab are products of the successful Sea Eagles Pathways Academy.
The next generation of Brydens Lawyers NSW Blues stars will team up with the State of Origin team for a training camp under Coach Brad Fittler.
Fittler, who will be joined by assistant coaches Danny Buderus, Paul McGregor and Mark O’Meley, said he was looking forward to re-connecting with the Emerging Blues after representative pathways games were forced to be cancelled for the past two years over the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I have always been passionate about the next generation of NSW stars coming through the system ever since my time as a representative pathways coach,” Fittler said.
“The NSWRL has a proud history of nurturing talented players as they rise through the ranks and some of the star players for the Brydens Lawyers NSW Blues began their representative careers in NSW pathways teams.
“The game will always produce Rugby League stars and I’m looking forward to working with the Future Blues to help them realise their potential, as well as assisting with training sessions for the Sky Blues and Under 19s Women’s Origin teams.”
