NRL And Clubs Head Back To The Juniors
Grass roots clubs, volunteers and officials from across the state have been recognised in the NRL's third "Back to the Juniors" weekend.
The annual community-focused event celebrates the fantastic contribution that volunteers make to Rugby League every weekend.
There was a pleasing response from within the NRL, NSWRL and NRL clubs, who were out in force to lend a helping hand at junior and grass roots Rugby League grounds. More than 120 members of NRL management, staff, the NRL Referees’ squad and coaching staff got involved, as well as a number of NRL clubs. Some of these included:
- The Newcastle Knights and Newcastle Rugby League, with NRL stars visiting local clubs Maitland, Kurri Kurri, Central Newcastle, Wests, Souths, Lakes, Macquarie and Cessnock on the previous Monday.
- The St George Illawarra Dragons, who visited local teams including the Shellharbour Sharks, Arncliffe Scots and the Corrimal Cougars - with more photos at the @NRL_DCommunity Twitter account.
- Interstate clubs, including the Melbourne Storm, Gold Coast Titans and Brisbane Broncos, also got involved.
