Jade Anderson named in Commonwealth squad

Manly Warringah Sea Eagles NRL

Exciting young Sea Eagles full-back Jade Anderson has been selected in the Australian squad for the 2018 Rugby League Commonwealth Championships.

Anderson was chosen by Coach Adrian Lam for the championships to be held at Redcliffe’s Dolphin Stadium on February 23-24.

For Anderson, the selection is a fine recognition for his outstanding season for the Sea Eagles in the Holden Cup competition in 2017.

The 21-year-old has been training strongly with the Manly NRL squad during the pre-season.

Lam said it was a great opportunity for the players to participate in the exhibition nine-a-side (U23) tournament, being held in the lead-up to the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018).

“Many of these players are and have been in representative systems so I am looking forward to working with all of them,” Lam said.

“We have former Junior Kangaroos and former Australian Schoolboys in the squad, so they are clearly seen as future representative players.

“This is an important step for them in what will be a great exhibition of Rugby League and a wonderful initiative for the game.”

Australia has been included in Pool A, alongside Fiji, Scotland and Wales.
