Stars trying to upstage Santa

They are used to doing the impossible on the field, now some of Rugby League’s biggest stars are taking on another challenge - trying to upstage Santa at the annual One Community Christmas party in Sydney’s West.

Players from the Bulldogs, Sharks, Sea Eagles, Eels, Rabbitohs, Roosters, Panthers and Wests Tigers will make Christmas wishes come true for over 50 very special children when they head to Go Bananas play centre for the final NRL players Charity Christmas party.

Children from Aboriginal Medical Services Western Sydney, Westmead Children’s Hospital and the Western Sydney Academy PCYC will have the chance to run around with some of their favorite NRL stars during the annual Rugby League’s One Community event.

The party follows a successful celebration in Queensland last week, with over 50 special NRL fans treated to a unique Christmas experience at Billabong Sanctuary in Townsville.

This Wednesday will mark the second and final 2011 NRL Players’ Charity Christmas Party where children will engage in activities including a meet and greet with Santa and his elves, a special Christmas lunch and plenty of play time with their heroes.

One Community Ambassadors Mario Fenech, Trent Barrett and Rhys Wesser will also be at the Christmas party, helping bring some much needed cheer to some brave kids.
