The new Salford University Rugby League head coach is giving students the chance to compete on the reserves team.
Tyrone McCarthy, who currently plays for Salford Red Devils, was appointed head coach in September this year.
In a recent interview, McCarthy discussed the opportunities he is offering to upcoming sporting talent.
“I’m really excited about what the lads are going to produce, you get to see what some of them are capable of and theres been some encouraging signs over the last few weeks” McCarthy states
“There’s big opportunities with the reserves starting back at Salford next year and that’s what i’ve said to the lads, if i spot anything i’ll relay that to the club.”
Dan Norman, a University of Salford student, said:
“It’s nice to have someone with a lot of experience
“It’s a good way to grow the game and develop the lads and to get us involved with the reserves.”
McCarthy will be playing in the Super League Grand Final this weekend where the Red Devils will be facing off against St Helens.
The search for talent has started and he will be looking for standout players to form the reserve team.
