NRL Social: Eels look up to Bogut

NRL players were going ga-ga over celebrities and babies this week in the social sphere while also connecting with the fans and doing their bit for Indigenous Round. 

Bogut heads west

There was a 'big' name on hand as Eels players gathered in Parramatta on Thursday.

'Voice' of Penrith

Pop star Joe Jonas was lucky enough to meet and greet Panthers players at Penrith Stadium on Thursday night.

It's a boy!

Congratulations are in order for Michael Jennings and Tuimoala Lolohea who both announced they're set to become dads.

Lolohea already has a girl and said he's looking forward to adding to the family. "It's a BOY! Can't wait to meet my little man", Lolohea wrote.

"Feeling blessed to be having a baby boy with this gem of [a] girl Kristin, feeling over the moon and excited can't wait to start this new chapter in my life," Jennings shared.

Speaking of Dads, Dane Gagai spent some time with his little one while he prepared for Sunday's clash against the Dragons.

Friday night's Bulldogs win was also a warm welcome for some Canterbury fans who endured the cold and celebrated with Raymond Faitala-Mariner post game, much to his delight.

On their first trip out of Sydney this season, the Sydney Roosters demolished the New Zealand Warriors in the pouring rain and no doubt looked forward to spending some quality time together afterwards. Blake Ferguson shared a photo from the sheds, crediting the Chooks' efforts in keeping the Warriors scoreless.

Prior to that game, Roosters centre Latrell Mitchell and Warriors hooker Isaac Luke took to the field in honour of the NRL's Indigenous Round. Mitchell referred to Kiwi Luke as a legend and was grateful to be able to be involved in such an occasion.

"Amazing Experience with two cultures coming together, massive honour on behalf of the @sydneyroosters to get this opportunity to share a breath with the legend himself," Mitchell wrote on Instagram.

Down south, St George Illawarra prop Jeremy Latimore was at the end of a losing bet thanks to a bad roll of the dice. The punishment? Getting a spray tan off teammate Jason Nightingale. Lucky for us, Tonya, the Dragons bus, was there to capture his makeover.

And how was this from Angus Crichton postgame Sunday?

"Great shot mate, great win. Thanks for all of the support SSFC fans, onto the Cowboys" Crichton tweeted:
