Benji still the 'King of the Kids'
Monday 11 February 2013 5:11 PM
The screams were enough to break any sound barrier when Wests Tigers visited Holy Spirit Primary School at North Ryde today.
Benji Marshall and Jacob Miller were greeted with almighty screams as excited students, and a few teachers, welcome the players into their school for the Bingo Balmain Blitz day. The players arrived on the back of a Bingo Skip Bin.
The visit was the final leg of the Wests Tigers Community Carnival and saw the NRL squad visit more than 40 schools in the Balmain region.
The past week has seen Wests Tigers visit almost 100 primary and high schools in the Southern Highlands, Campbelltown and Balmain regions to spread key anti-bullying messages, promote junior rugby league and club membership.
Marshall again proved the ‘King of the Kids’. Every time he stepped up to the microphone, children roared in excitement.
The visit ended with boys, girls and a few brave teachers producing their own version of the now famous ‘Benji Marshall side step’. The students also received a Wests Tigers showbag.
