More than 1000 footy fans turned out in Dubbo to see the Western Rams play the Sea Eagles in junior rep matches late last month. The Trbojevic brothers and Darcy Lussick provided a bit of star power at Caltex Park, where Manly’s teams notched resounding wins in both the under-16s and under-18s.

MORRIS TELLS MINORS ABOUT RESPECT
Brett Morris was one of six NRL stars who visited Kingscliff on the NSW North Coast to appear at primary and high schools. Morris was promoting the League’s campaign against bullying, violence and racism, #NRLrespect, and stressed the importance of being inclusive of others. “Plenty of kids at school, sometimes they feel left out and it’s about bringing them closer together and hopefully they make some friends,” Morris said.
