Selectors for the Western Rams 16s side will have some “hard decisions” to make as they finalise their Andrew Johns Cup side, Dubbo’s Andy Haycock said.
Haycock helps run local satellite training for the players alongside Dubbo CYMS great Luke Jenkins.
The 28-player squad is large enough to run two separate lines – which is exactly what happened in Sunday’s trial against the Central Coast Roosters at Penrith.
“All of them were really competitive and there wasn’t much of a difference between the two [lines] so selectors have got a pretty tough decision to make,” Haycock said.
St Johns Dubbo duo Bray Porter and Zac Williams scored in the trial, while South Dubbo’s Aston Warwick was also a standout.
“A lot of great kids … they all had a red hot go,” Haycock said.
“We’ve had a fair bit of success … We were lucky enough to win with the 16s last year so there’s fairly highly expectations about how we should be travelling in this competition.”
