A group of budding Northland rugby players are in Hamilton this weekend at the Te Hiku O Te Ika under 18s Maori training camp.

The group, led by NZ rugby legend Eric Rush, are at the Mangakotukutuku campus in Glenview for the three-day camp which started yesterday.

It is designed to provide a quality environment for player growth, profile and identify players and pathways, support development and select a Central Te Hiku O Te Ika Maori boys' under 18 team.

The camp will cover all aspects of rugby, including nutrition, individual skills training for forwards and backs and mental skills training.

Tomorrow the youngsters will split in two for a trial game at 3pm, with the representative team to come from that.
