As a part of the Hogs for Homeless western region tour, the team of former rugby league legends will stop in Cowra to host a clinic with St Raphael’s at River Park.

On Tuesday, February 21 from 11am the likes of Brad Fittler, Nathan Hindmarsh and Steve Menzies will roll into town and spend about an hour and a half with St Raphael’s students from years 7 to 10.

The kids will get an opportunity to take part in some basic skill development and rugby league games and will receive a free drink bottle.

Brad Fittler says it’s important to raise awareness of homelessness.

“The key to all our messages is just to be grateful. Be part of a club, whether it is footy, chess or anything, but get out and enjoy it,” Fittler said.

“Every kid we meet gets a football and we hope it can make a difference.”

From Cowra, the team will continue the tour to Dubbo where they’ll be based overnight hosting a dinner at Dubbo RSL.
