Checking NRL websites turned up a remarkable range of good works that the clubs are doing, not only engaging the players, some are seriously involved in community development. My favourites are the Panthers Kokoda project and the Manly schools program.
What if the NRL has a stand at the Easter Show where all the clubs could have a display to showcase their community activities?
