NRL Social - Beanie for Brain Cancer Round

This week's NRL social recap is dedicated to Beanie for Brain Cancer, where we, the rugby league community, come together in an effort to fight brain cancer.

Beanie for Brain Cancer

Expect to see some of your favourites running out with beanies on this weekend, as well as showing their support all across social media for the Mark Hughes Foundation.

"How good do beanies look on me" joked Clint Gutherson.

Roosters Luke Keary and Victor Radley swapped the tricolours for the popular knitwear:

Being injured wasn't going to stop Mitchell Pearce showing his support for former Knight, Mark Hughes.

"Our stadium in Newcastle is renamed and everyone can collect beanies from the grounds, Ritchie's IGA or the MHF website for $20. Amazing charity," Pearce wrote.

No matter the team, every NRL player has gotten on board:

Training with Teddy

James Tedesco headed north for the afternoon on Wednesday to attend the Narraweena Hawks training session. The Roosters star trained with the kids while also making the young side's day - he got to surprise them, announcing they'd be the NSW representatives for the Junior State of Origin challenge to be held at the MCG next month.


Hokko's homecoming

While it may have been a long-time coming, Trent Hodkinson is back at Manly where his NRL career began. Hokko posed for a photo with fellow half Daly Cherry-Evans after their side celebrated that big win over the Melbourne Storm

Dragons give back

They may be top of the table, but that doesn't mean the St George Illawarra Dragons have forgotten what's important - the fans. Nene MacDonald shared some snaps from the team's recent visit to St George Hospital.



Such a good feeling coming in and putting smiles on these kids faces ♥️

Shark Strike

The Cronulla Sharks took team bonding to the bowling alley midweek. The side, including coach Shane Flanagan, all enjoyed an afternoon of fun and banter. The side had plenty to smile about too - they've now won five games in a row.
