NSW Indigenous youngsters named in National Talent

14th Feb 2014

It’s no wonder New South Wales has dominated the 2014 Imparja Cup. Their pool of talent has the potential to progress toward the Baggy Green dream with Newcastle’s Jonte Pattison and Bankstown’s Ash Gardiner selected for the male and female U18 national talent squads, respectively. The pair will attend talent camps and undergo a range of training, match scenarios, musculoskeletal screening, fitness testing and psychological profiling under the watchful eye of specialist coaches, including Australian Test great and CA’s National Talent Manager Greg Chappell and Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars Head Coach Cathryn Fitzpatrick

Pattison and Gardiner spoke to media today about the national selection and their time in Alice Springs this week competing for state pride in the national indigenous tournament.
