Waratahs Visit Eagles

Cowra’s Harry Johnson-Holmes, who paid the Cowra Eagles a visit last week.

Using their two-week lead into the trans-Tasman competition, the NSW Waratahs headed out into the Central West to visit local Rugby Union Clubs. With a vast support base in the region, the Waratahs set their sights on getting back to the bush, dropping in on 17 clubs. Cowra Rugby Union were lucky enough to have both junior and senior players take advantage of the opportunity to have the elite players come to their training day. Picking up pointers and building on skills, the players and coaches took their new found training back to the field. By all accounts, the visit was profoundly well received with very excited junior eagles leaping at the opportunity to run around the field with the very players they look up to.

The visit was made all the more special when it was revealed that three of the visiting Waratahs originated from Cowra. Max Douglas, Hugh Sinclair, and Harry Johnson-Holmes shared not only their skills with the young eagles, but a unique grass roots connection.
