Rohrig EDP Launches - 7 / Feb / 2018

 The 2018 Rohrig Elite Development Program (EDP) commenced last weekend with the inaugural EDP Performance Camp held at Twin Waters over three days. The camp was a huge success and finished with the official 2018 launch held at Brothers Rugby Club attended by current EDP players and parents, EDP alumni, EDP mentors, BRC life members, sponsors and extended community.

Directed by BRC Rugby Manager Ryan Schultz, the program aims to develop the person by focusing on both they’re rugby and career endeavours.  The program also provides opportunities for individuals to create networks that help will assist them in achieving their goals in the short and long term.

The selection process for the program begins in March each year with a systematic talent identification process through both club and school rugby. We have a wide network of affiliates in South East Queensland, country Queensland and northern New South Wales that assists us in identify individuals who will fit into the program and benefit from it.  

The 2018 EDP Players have already proven themselves as worthy candidates and we look forward to seeing them working hard at maximising their potential and hopefully playing Premier Grade for BRC within 1 – 3 years.

For 2018, we have recruited a talented group of players, all of which we expect will be playing Premier Grade for Brothers within 1 to 3 years.  The recruits are:
