Gold Coast Titans centre Konrad Hurrell recently returned home to Tonga to help family and friends after the country was devastated by Cyclone Gita. reporter Zac Bailey joined Hurrell as he surprised loved ones in the country’s cyclone-ravaged capital Nuku’alofa.

Hurrell was granted leave from pre-season training by Titans coach Garth Brennan, a decision that gave the Tongan international the chance to lend a hand following the Category 4 cyclone.

Houses were flattened and lives lost in the natural disaster that has crippled the nation.

Hurrell played his part in the clean up as Tonga tries to recover from the aftermath of the 230-kilometre plus winds that ripped through the capital, remote villages and outer islands.
