sport news Revealed: The surprising NRL stars who have been hand-picked to sell the game ... trends now
Broncos halfback Adam Reynolds, veteran Sea Eagles prop Aaron Woods and Rabbitohs centre Campbell Graham are firming to be three of the NRL's ambassadors ahead of the code's historic Las Vegas double header in March.
The Roosters still need to name their player representative for Sin City, with Manly tackling South Sydney (March 3, 1.30pm, AEDT) before Brisbane take on the Tricolours (March 3, 3.30pm, AEDT) at Allegiant Stadium.
And while the NRL is yet to officially rubber-stamp the quartet of ambassadors, Reynolds, Woods and Graham were all put forward by their respective clubs.
Woods is sure to be regarded as a surprising choice by fans, given the 32-year-old is at the tail end of his career and only played 15 games for the club last season.
However, Sea Eagles CEO Tony Mestrov labelled the prop the 'ideal person to represent the club' while Rabbitohs counterpart Blake Solly described outside back Campbell as 'intelligent and articulate'.
It is also understood Broncos officials are happy for Reynolds to head to the US, despite previously stating lock forward Pat Carrigan was their initial choice ahead of pin up fullback and fan favourite Reece Walsh.
The four ambassadors will participate in a number of promotions in America from December 9-15, in a bid to generate interest and ticket sales.
