NRL Social - Rep round, returns and farewells

With so much content coming out of last week's NRL representative round, you can be forgiven for missing some of the best posts floating around on social - that's where we come in with our recap!

 

Uncle Gus

Despite having an action-packed week of NSW duties ahead of him, Blues gun Angus Crichton made the effort to meet up with South Sydney teammate John Sutton to present his son with a personalised jersey.

"Thanks Uncle Gus for Acey boys jersey he loves it won't take it off," Sutton posted to his Instagram. No doubt he wore the jersey with pride when the Blues brought it home Sunday night.

Denver Test something to Crowe about

There was no way Russell Crowe was going to miss some of his star Rabbitohs pulling on the England jersey against his homeland New Zealand.  He celebrated post-game with South Sydney's Sam and Tom Burgess. 

 

Great to have @russellcrowe with us after to celebrate the win! #DenverTest #RugbyLeagueChallenge

Farewell, friend

After the Parramatta Eels announced the sad news co-captain Beau Scott had retired from rugby league after suffering a season-ending ACL injury, tributes quickly flowed in from past and present teammates.

 

Just hold on, I'm (not) coming home

After his much publicised battle with delayed and cancelled flights this week, at least Marty Taupau could crack a joke in the midst of his travelling debacle. 

Up the Wests Tigers

The Pacific Test match between Samoa and Tonga fulfilled all expectations, none so more than for West Tigers' Michael Chee Kam. After his Samoan side went down to Tonga, he got his NRL teammates together for a photo.

The showdown between the two nations was championed by NRL players from those who participated in the game and off the field.

Maroon pride

Amelia Kuk ran out for Queensland with an extra pep in her step. Sydney Roosters and former Queensland half Cooper Cronk presented Kuk with her gameday jersey.

 "Feels like the first time I received this QLD Jersey," she wrote on Instagram.

 

Out and about

Gerald Beale made the most of the Warriors bye week to do some Lord of the Rings exploring with the family.

 

Today we were hobbits. Love adventuring and exploring new places with my gang!

World Cup Fever

Injured Panther Josh Mansour has been putting his passion for football to good use, appearing on Optus Sports' coverage of the 2018 World Cup.

The diehard Arsenal supporter has been polishing up his presenting skills, and we gotta say, not too shabby, Josh!

Souths support inclusion

In an effort to support more inclusion, South Sydney have made a short doco and entered it into the FOA Film Festival.

Check out the video below and be sure to support their effort here.

Look who's back

It's not hard to tell that Robbie Farah is just a little bit excited about playing for the Wests Tigers again. Robbie and the new (old) teammates will take on the Gold Coast on Sunday.
