Broncos make trip to schools
FOR local schools, Peace Lutheran and Our Lady of Good Counsel in Gatton, a visit from Brisbane Broncos players was a treat on Thursday.
The rugby league players said it was important to be in the Lockyer Valley doing the clinic with those affected by the flood disaster.
"After what they’ve seen it is good to see them getting their mind on something else positive such as team sport and get their mind off the devastation," one player, Dunamis Lui said.
"It is good to teach them new skills at the clinic."
Bronco Josh McGuire was also running the session and said the purpose of the visit was to promote league to the kids and keep them happy.
"This is our first school and it is great to see smile on kid’s faces after all that’s happened," he said.
"I’ve seen a lot of the images on the news, so anything little we can to do help is good," he said.
Although Gatton was the players’ first stop, they went on to see the destruction in the Valley on their way to Toowoomba and then later in Oakey.
Australian Rugby League Development Officer for Toowoomba, Col Henschell, said the clinic is an annual event.
"All the teams in the league are going out to rural areas and it is fantastic," he said.
