BIG NAMES TOUR
RUGBY league greats making their way through the game’s heartland will be in St George today, as the Drought Relief Goodwill Tour nears its end.
The tour began in Longreach on Monday, and has since hit Blackall and Charleville, before making its way to Roma tomorrow and Saturday.
Maroons stars David Shillington, Michael Crocker, Chris Walker, Cronulla player Kurt Capewell and former Broncos player Shane Walker are visiting rural locations to raise morale amongst drought-stricken residents.
Charleville born and bred, Capewell said he couldn’t wait to see the joy this tour would bring to many rural residents.
“I’m absolutely thrilled that the game has come together to support those doing it tough in these areas,” Capewell said.
The group will be at St George State School today, hosting a coaching and development clinic.
This evening the Aussie Hotel will host an informal meet-and-greet fundraiser, where local residents are encouraged to participate, with opportunities to speak about how the drought is affecting them, particularly mentally.
