It can be a culture shock for a country kid coming to live and work in the big city.
That’s why 24 aspiring players from regional NSW travel to Sydney for our Country to City Camp.
The participants get exposure to what it means to be an NRL player by visiting various NRL Clubs and getting a chance to mix with current and former players.
They also get an opportunity to learn about city life, including simple things like catching the train and getting around the city, something that can be daunting at first.
During their three days they will also receive talks on social media, leadership, relocation, careers and decision-making.
