Pre-season training kicking off soon

RUGBY LEAGUE: The Stanthorpe Rugby League Club will be giving its season a head start, hosting pre-season training on Wednesday night.

Held at Sullivan Oval from 6pm, the sessions will be run by 2015 premiership winning coach Damian Petrie.

Stanthorpe Rugby League Football Club president David Ball said they were thrilled to have Petrie on board.

"We're really privileged to have him helping us out this year," Ball said.

"Everyone's really keen for a good season and stuff, that's why we're going to start training early."

Although the BRL season doesn't begin until after Easter, players wanting to get a head start on their fitness and sharpen their skills are encouraged to take part in the training sessions.

The club is looking good in the early stages with a number of players already confirming there services for the 2017 season.

"We've got a lot of returning players," Ball said.

"Probably 8... or 10 players have already said they were playing."

Players wanting to register for the 2017 season can do so online at playnrl.com and following the prompts.

Alternatively, phone the club through the Stanthorpe Gremlins RLFC Facebook page, or the club registrar on 0401 069 244.

Players are also able to register on Wednesday night before attending the training session.

Training will continue every Wednesday night from 6pm for the duration of the season.
