Sea Eagles Players Join In Avalon Bulldogs J.R.F.L.C. Training Session

Clinton Gutherson and Jorge Tuafua joined in the Training Session of the Avalon Bulldogs JRFLC on Tuesday evening, 27th of May. Coaches Brian Friend, Jack Friend, Matthew Edding, Peter Johnson, Blake Cousemacker, Jett Hobbs, Aaron Groom and Gaven Sheehan helped run drills with the two Manly Sea Eagles players.

We asked the boys what they learnt from the training session and the answers were “to run, to kick, to tackle, to pass properly.” Catching was demonstrated and the guests said they really enjoyed their time with the junior players.

Jorge Taufua was born 23 October 1991 in Canberra, Australian Capital Territory and is an Australian professional rugby league footballer for the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles, joining the Sea Eagle’s reserve-grade team in 2012. Prior to that he played his junior football for the Toongabbie Tigers & Wentworthville Magpies whilst attending The Hills Sports High School before being signed by the Parramatta Eels. He played for the Eels' Toyota Cup team in 2010. He debuted for the Sea Eagles Round 4 of the 2012 NRL season and has since gone on to establish himself in Wing and Center positions for the club. Jorge has also been a Tonga national representative three-quarter back, and played for City vs Country.

Clinton Gutherson was born 9 September 1994 at Mona Vale, played his junior football for the Cromer Kingfishers before being signed by the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles. He played for the Sea Eagles' National Youth Camp team in 2012 and 2013 before debuting for the Sea Eagles in Round 26 of the 2013 NRL season. Clinton Gutherson has played for the New South Wales U16's and U18's teams played for the Australian Schoolboys in 2012 and for the New South Wales U20's team in 2013.
