Sharks' Academy Manager Ray Unsworth said, "I look upon this as an opportunity to assess the boys in a situation where they're playing against their peer group from another club. This competition is 'talent confirmation'. We've monitored their development, through our programmes from the age of fourteen through to eighteen."
