Bulldogs Visit Budding Stars
Friday 1 March 2013 2:51 PM
Twenty four Bulldogs players paid a visit to the areas budding junior stars at eleven local junior clubs on a windy and wet Thursday afternoon.
The afternoon was a great opportunity to visit the kids and assist clubs with registration numbers. Although the weather resembled a cold winter night as opposed to the last day of Summer, the players were in great spirit and enjoyed the opportunity to meet the kids.
James Graham who is feeling more at home every day, particularly with the weather, joined up and comer Shane Pumipi at the St George Dragons home base in Kingsgrove. Home of five-eighth Josh Reynolds the St George kids were very familiar with the Bulldogs and super excited to have some new Bulldogs faces at their training.
Spending time with the under 10’s, Shane and James were extremely impressed with the skills on show, including some hard hitting tackles that had the players asking “are you sure these kids are under 10” on more than one occasion.
Next stop was the under 12’s who ceased their training to have a chat and question time with James and Shane. Some great questions were asked including the players favourite team to play against, hardest player to tackle – Nth QLD’s James Tamou was the unanimous winner and one for James - “What made you want to leave the Super League to play in the NRL?”
The Bulldogs highly value the work our local junior clubs do and opportunities like Thursday was a great way to give back and show the Club’s appreciation.
