The Academy Tour is over and it was a huge success.
We are producing a DVD and YouTube Video of the event and will collate all the footage and photo’s over the coming month.
As we said to the group at Holbrook on the way back, you can have a Dream, even plan it meticulously to make it happen, but without buy in from others it does not work. This group were absolutely sensational on tour and a credit to all their families and the club. The helped turn a Dream into a Reality and put the Wolves on the map.

The tour showed the club and the players that they have what it takes to compete in the Rugby League Capital with a win over Kurri & a close loss to Warragamba. We look forward to more tours and we have an invitation to play Cabramatta next year as well. Both Kurri & Cabramatta want to send teams to Melbourne to play the Wolves at home now.
The Wolves have made some great contacts and all goes well for our continued development as a pathway club to the NRL.
A fairy tale climax with the Storm winning the grand final….19 excited boys and more…the tour lasted a week…the memories will last forever!
