The major winner of the Hogs for Homeless raffle has been announced in the moments leading up to the Parramatta Eels-Manly Sea Eagles Round 1 NRL clash at Pirtek Stadium.

The major winner of the Harley-Davidson XL1200X 48 worth $19,495 - an amazing performance machine guaranteed to turn the winner's friends and family green with envy - is (drum roll, please):

John Wilson from Greenwell Point in NSW.

CONGRATULATIONS JOHN!

Thanks to everyone who has purchased raffle tickets in the draw. All proceeds go to a great cause, Father Chris Riley's Youth Off the Streets charity which aims to conquer teen and young adult homelessness.

Congratulations to everyone who got involved in the ride too, especially the rugby league legends leading the crusade: Brad Fittler and his team of Nathan Hindmarsh, Matt Cooper, Steve Menzies and Ian Schubert.

Be sure to return to NSWRL.com.au soon as we reveal more winners, recap the tour with Freddy and announce the final total raised for Father Riley's worthy cause.
