Hogs' Great Work Continues
Brad Fittler's Hogs For The Homeless crew, raising funds for Father Chris Riley's Youth Off the Streets, have almost completed their state-wide journey.
Their cross-state ride has taken them to all parts of NSW in a 3500-kilometre trip that takes in 17 country towns. The goal is to improve the wellbeing of young Australians in rural parts of the state, while promoting the great game of Rugby League by giving away more than 3000 footballs.
The riders will now set their sights on the NSWRL Season Launch tomorrow (29 February), where they will join NSWRL CEO David Trodden in rolling out their blankets and sleeping under the stars at Mounties following the Launch.
The crew will also be joined by NSW VB Blues coach Laurie Daley in running a children's Rugby League clinic at 4pm, before providing a barbecue for children from Youth Off The Streets.
The Hogs For The Homeless squad, consisting of former NSW Origin representatives Fittler, Nathan Hindmarsh, Steve Menzies, Matt Cooper, Steve Roach, Josh Perry and Ian Schubert, held Rugby League clinics in remote passionate Rugby League communities such as Mudgee, Forbes, Wagga Wagga and Gloucester.
Currently in its fourth year, the annual tour aims to drive Rugby League participation and membership, as well as raise awareness and money for Father Chris Riley’s Youth off the Streets.
