Winners All Round
There was plenty to celebrate for Newcastle Knights fans on Saturday with the team’s second win of the season capped off with a bonanza of Good Sports fun and games.
Fans were treated to a variety of entertainment, including a head in the hole banner, colouring in stations and celebrity appearances.
Special guests, including Knights stars Pauli Pauli, Bradie Smith, Dylan Phythian and Jaelen Feeney, were on hand to chat to fans and join in on the fun.
But the real highlight was the chance to reward some very important Good Sports junior guests. Players and parents from Dungog, Glendale, South Newcastle and Windale Good Sports Junior clubs were lucky enough to take the field at half-time to run a ‘fruit and spoon’ race, promoting the link between healthy eating and sport.
15-year-old Dane Laman of Dungong Junior Rugby League Club had an extra memorable day. The lucky junior was given the chance to do the all-important coin toss, meeting both team captains pre-game.
According to one of the lucky parents, “It was an awesome day.”
“My son and I were so excited to go on to the big NRL field and play a game together.”
The Good Sports team would like to thank nib for the opportunity to team up and promote the healthy sporting environments and clubs that the Good Sports Junior program can create.
Good Sports representative Penny Morgan agreed that it was a day to remember.
“It’s great to team up with our community partners nib Foundation to increase awareness around safer and healthier sporting clubs”
