This is mutually beneficial for both as it will gain exposure for the Academy, but also assist in getting the Waratahs brands into as many schools as possible and develop an interest in Rugby Union amongst our youth.
When asked about this opportunity, Jackal Academy, Director of Sport, Jayson Joerdens said,
"Our Illawarra development officer, Chris, has been a supporter of getting the Academy involved in these programs as well as assisting Chris with his own Illawarra program of Youth Rugby 7's for schools.
