In taking up these appointments, both were brimming with enthusiasm for this new venture with Andy Moulsdale commenting “I am delighted to be involved in the start of the Origin set up, a lot of hard work has gone into getting this up and running – it’s an exciting time for North Wales rugby league. It will take time but we are certainly creating that much needed pathway”.
Conrad Anderson, has already generated a lot of local and even national interest in the NW Origin staunchly believing in the need to develop home grown talent for the great benefit of the National team and beyond.
Anderson himself said “over the years I have interviewed a lot of people involved in the game that has consistently highlighted the lack of opportunity in North Wales for our youngsters. I have even interviewed on my show, the few that have made it often seemingly against the odds but now with the help of a really dedicated team of volunteers we are starting see not only a clear continuing development pathway for the youngsters but more are deservedly getting noticed and selected”.
Anderson also works closely with NW Origin’s head coach Mark Robinson in his role of Community Liaison officer to develop Rugby League further in schools and clubs; a fundamental part of the player pipeline for the future. He went onto say, “working closely with Andy Moulsdale and Mark Robinson at North Wales Crusaders, it was another no-brainer reason for me to accept the position of vice-chair, we all have a good working relationship and strive to achieve great things. These are very exciting times for Rugby League in North Wales and I’m delighted that I’m part of it”.
The appointments also help put into place another link in the player pathway. This, between NW Origin representation and the professional North Wales Crusaders team.
