St George Illawarra Dragons winger Tom Carr cannot wait to run out alongside his teammates after being named for the pre-season fixture against Wynnum-Manly Seagulls at Pinklands Oval, Redlands on Saturday, February 6.

The local Helensburgh Tigers junior is in the midst of his first pre-season with the first-grade squad after graduating from the Club’s National Youth Competition ranks and is excited by what lies ahead.

Cooper Named For Redlands Trial

“I can’t wait to take to the field as training with the guys has been unbelievable,” said Carr

“Watching them last season after the Under 20’s helped me focus on achieving that goal of playing alongside them.

“I can’t wait to do that now I’ve be selected to do that in a trial against Wynnum-Manly.”

Tickets for the pre-season fixture, proudly organised by Redlands Juniors, are now available for purchase.

Capacity is limited so fans are encouraged to pre-purchase and get in early to avoid missing out.
