NRL Social: Milestones, important messages and tributes to Peter Wallace

Scrolling through social media can be an arduous task, so we've have made things easier for you by compiling some of the best posts from around the NRL stratosphere.

Players from the Telstra Premiership and Holden Women's Premiership were active in the social sphere this week celebrating milestones, paying tribute to Peter Wallace following his premature retirement and delivering important messages.

Yeah the boys

Newcastle life continues to agree with Kalyn Ponga, Connor Watson and Tom Hughes as the trio got together for some quality lads time.

Chooks reunite

His team may have lost, but Shaun Kenny-Dowall still managed a smile even with a busted face. SKD caught up with fellow Roosters teammates Jared Waerea-Hargreaves, Dylan Napa and Blake Ferguson after their two sides met Saturday.

Salute to Wallace

The NRL community came together this week to honour Penrith Panther Peter Wallace who hung up the boots on his 240 game career following an ongoing shoulder injury.

Milestone madness

It was also a week to celebrate NRL milestones, with both Shaun Johnson and Sam Burgess clocking up 150 NRL appearances.

 

Only took 150 games to hit a hole (get ya mind out the gutter 😏) and jeez it felt good

Michael Jennings geared up for his 250th NRL game on Thursday night but unfortunately his brother Robert had the last laugh, scoring four tries on the wing for the Rabbitohs as they thumped the Eels at ANZ Stadium.

Think before you tweet

This week the Melbourne Storm partnered with charity LIVIN in an attempt to break down the stigma surrounding mental health and many NRL players quickly rallied behind the cause.

The video was produced in order to help raise more awareness in regards to online bullying, something most athletes now have to endure.

But first, coffee

We can't agree more, Jordan!

Shout out to the dads

Inspirations

And it was great to see plenty of support in the social sphere for NRL.com's in-depth story on Vanessa Foliaki and Karina Brown, who are in the unique situation of being a couple off the field but fierce rivals on the field. Let's hope they don't injure each other next Friday at North Sydney Oval in the historic Holden State of Origin showdown.
