It's most encouraging not just for these three but for our other young players as well who can see the pathway for representation is there."

The lads will now need a bit of help to get them on their way and we're looking for some financial support to help cover the costs of the trip, which is about ?1200 each."

This Sunday the Broncos and Huddersfield Giants will join forces to raise funds at a pre-match dinner at the George Hotel. The dinner and auction is in aid of seriously injured players Matt King and Danny Scott.

Broncos Development Manager Phil Jones, who is co-ordinating the Broncos efforts, is equally enthusiastic about the way the two clubs had come together. He said: "I think it's very significant that the two clubs are working together on this event, and I think it's a great reflection on our sport the way in which everyone pulls together in times of hardship."
