Youngsters pick up tips as Sea Eagles land

 

THERE were plenty of happy kids (and proud parents) in Coffs Harbour today following a skills and drills session with the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles.

The NRL squad took time out from their intense five day training camp at Novotel Pacific Bay Resort's elite training facility to give 115 emerging rugby league locals some new tips and skills.

11-year-old Brendon Lansdown said it was a dream come true.

"It's the first time I've ever actually seen a football team in real life - I'm a very, very big Manly supporter," he said.

The enthusiasm was shared by the Sea Eagles' Daly Cherry-Evans

"This is a part of job that's definitely not a hassle to get motivated for," he said.

"The boys don't have to think too far back to remember when we were in their position looking up to any interaction with NRL players.

"It's an opportunity to give back and hopefully the kids appreciate what we've hopefully been able to teach them."
