St George Illawarra Dragons National Youth Competition team hooker Reece Robson admits he is learning invaluable information off his more senior peers.

The Australia Schoolboys representative, who recently extended his contract to remain at the Red-and-Whites for a further three seasons, notes that the opportunity to learn under fellow rakes Cameron McInnes and Josh McCrone has been of great benefit to his ongoing development.

The NSW U18 representative is one of five members of the Young Dragons ranks invited to partake in the first-grade pre-season training program and he believes all members have benefited from the experience.

“I’m learning a lot from both Cameron McInnes and Josh McCrone and just trying to take in as much as I can and improve the areas that I need to,” said Robson.

“The other younger boys are also going well and handling the step-up well so I’m pretty proud of that.

“The pre-season training has been great but we’re now nearing the holiday break and I’m looking forward to that.

“We all remain switched on which is good to see and I am still trying to learn as much as I can now and during that break to come back in ready to start the new season.

“I’m trying to remain as enthusiastic despite the body having a few miles under its belt now but I’m hoping to keep it up between now and the break.”
