The likes of Marcelo Montoya and Wayde Egan were getting their hands dirty with locals at the Capalaba Warriors Rugby League Club on Brisbane’s south side.
Many local rugby league clubs in South East Queensland and Northern New South Wales were inundated during the torrential rain and floods from late last week, losing training equipment and change rooms as a result.
The NRL have created a $500,000 flood relief fund to help get clubs back up and running in the affected areas.
The money was originally designated for the public NRL season launch that was to take place yesterday.
However, the money was redirected to help repair clubhouses and purchase new equipment as NRL chief executive Andrew Abdo said it was more important to support the grassroots footy clubs and than hold the launch.
