The Echo and Echonetdaily in conjunction with the Gold Coast Titans are looking for junior sportswriters to cover home games during the 2013 NRL season.

Junior players from local rugby clubs are invited to apply and will be offered the chance to participate in the Cadet Journalist program and write a story that will be published in The Echo and Echonetdaily.

Junior reporters will be hosted at Skilled Park home games and will be given a subject on which they will write about 200 words for publication.

Subject will vary from the day in the life of a player to what sort of preparation the coach will put the team through.
