The NRL Road to Regions initiative will see players from various NRL clubs engaging with rugby league communities in parts of regional and remote Australia where there haven’t been high levels of NRL engagement historically – helping ensure the game will continue to grow across the country.
The NRL Road to Regions visit will be taking place across Australia from Thursday 8th to Saturday 10th of February, where players will hit the road, exciting and inspiring local fans, kicking the footy around at Junior Rugby League Come and Try events, spending time with local schools and coaches, and support local fundraising events.
This is the first year of the NRL’s Road to Regions initiative. It is replacing the previously successful NRL community carnival that had been running for approximately 10 years. This year we are lucky enough to have two high calibre players in Iosia Soliola from the Canberra Raiders and Wagga Junior Cameron King from the Parramatta Eels visiting different towns in the area.
Iosia Soliola will be attending Boorowa Central School Thursday 8 February at 9am along with NRL Game Development Staff to conduct an NRL Wellbeing Assembly. This is an interactive presentation, designed to promote the importance of healthy wellbeing through messages about belonging, nutrition, respect and healthy lifestyle. The
Assembly will go for approximately 30 minutes. On Saturday morning (10/2/18) from 10:30am – 11:30am Iosia will also be attending a Harden Junior League Registration day at Doolan Oval in Harden, where he will be doing a meet and greet with anyone wanting to attend.
