PSM has studied the NFL Combine Camps and modified it to suit Rugby League. Unlike normal rugby league trials, where everything comes down to how you perform in a one off game that can be highly affected by the performances of other trialists, the Combine Camp provides the player four (4) opportunities to showcase their talents to the scouts over two days.

An open letter from PSM Director regarding the inaugral PSM Combine
“I am proud to say that the inaugural PSM Combine Camp held at the Runaway Bay Sports Super Centre last weekend was a tremendous success with all participants and attendees giving the concept great reviews.
On the Thursday it was all about the junior elite players within our new PSM Elite Academy plus some selected wildcards from around the South East Queensland area. These young men were put through the Combine program which incorporated Fitness and Physical testing plus Defense / Attack drills that were conducted by NRL Coaches from the Parramatta Eels, Melbourne Storm and Gold Coast Titans along with a host of NRL Stars (Ben Barba / Nate Myles / Greg Bird / Ashley Harrison / Kevin Proctor / Jason Taumalolo / Brenton Lawrence / Kalifa Fai Fai Foa). These young players were provide a tremendous experience through participating in the PSM Junior Academy with many receiving one on one coaching advice from the likes of Parramatta Eels Coach Brad Arthur and John Cartwright….”
