Helping our mates is part of footy culture
Saturday 8 April pitted the Cowboys against the Tigers in Round 6 NRL action at 1300SMILES Stadium. While the result didn’t go our way, plenty of fun was had at the LGIAsuper Community Hub where we hosted the Men of League Foundation.
The Men of League Foundation was founded more than a decade ago on the premise of ‘helping out your mates.’ It provides funding and support to members of the rugby league community and their families who fall on hard times. Now with a 26,000-strong membership, the Men of League Foundation assists players, coaches, referees, officials and administrators across all levels of the game.
Thanks to all who dropped by the LGIAsuper Community Hub to say hi and find out more about this terrific community-minded organisation.
The Hub was kept busy with plenty of eager Howdy Club members lining up to claim their merchandise item – a Cowboys hand flag! Unfortunately, there wasn’t much to cheer about with the home side falling short against the Wests Tigers, 26-16. The loss was compounded further with the news that Johnathan Thurston could miss multiple matches with a calf injury sustained late in the game.
We wish ‘JT’ all the best in his recovery and the Cowboys good luck in their next match against the high-flying Dragons!
The LGIAsuper Community Hub returns on Saturday 22 April for the Round 8 clash between the Cowboys and Knights. To collect your Howdy Club merchandise item, scan your Howdy Club card at the Hub, located by the Western Gate at 1300SMILES Stadium. If you’re not a member, you can still sign up and receive your free Howdy hat!
