THIS Sunday, July 10, the Milton-Ulladulla Bulldogs’ under 7s team will have the rugby league opportunity of lives.
The team will have to the chance to be the guard of honour and walk out on to Pepper Stadium with the Penrith Panthers first grade side, before their round 18 clash against the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks.
Before the game, the team and their extended family's will be taking a tour of Panthers National Rugby League Academy, which cost $22 million.
It’s the best sporting facilities within the NRL at this time.
Bulldogs’ coach Matt Williams set up this incredible opportunity with his relationship with members of the Panthers club.
“The team and I can’t wait to get up there and experience all the Panthers have to offer,” he said.
“It’s great that the NRL and the Panthers are involved in initiative’s like this with regional teams, giving future stars the chance to see what exactly goes on at a professional rugby league club.”
Phil Gould, General Manager of Football for the Penrith Panthers, said the team would get an “an experience they will never forget.”
The Panthers offered the Milton-Ulladulla Bulldogs Junior Rugby League Club this sensational opportunity due to its rich history and the fact that it is the 60th anniversary of the club.
In 2016, they have 230 kids registered with the club from under 7s all the way through to under 16s including newly introduced under 14s and 16s girls league tag teams. The club has plans in place for a third girl team next year in the under 12s.
