NRL Social: The 2019 season kicks off in summer

The 2019 Telstra Premiership season is well underway with every NRL club returning to pre-season training after a well-deserved break.

While there are some senior players who are still living it up on holidays before returning to training, others are giving back the community and helping the younger generation.

Here in NRL.com's social recap you'll find all that's happening across the social media accounts of some of the game's stars.
