Junior league socks on show for Raiders match

Wests Tigers players will have a sea of colour on their legs at Campbelltown Sports Stadium this Saturday.


As part of the Clubs Junior League Appreciation Week festivities in Campbelltown, the Wests Tigers NRL team will wear the socks of their junior league clubs against Canberra Raiders.


Wests Tigers half-back Curtis Sironen has decided to wear one sock each from his two junior clubs in North Ryde Hawks and Dundas Shamrocks.


Benji Marshall, Ben Murdoch-Masila and Bodene Thompson will proudly wear the colours of their high school Keebra Park College. Shaun Spence will also wear the colours of St Gregorys College Campbelltown.


The players have really embraced the opportunity to pay homage to their junior league clubs or colleges, said Wests Tigers Chief Operating Officer Grant Mayer.


Several of the players even contacted their junior league clubs themselves to make sure they had their socks to wear.


"It is an exciting concept and a great way for Wests Tigers to acknowledge the importance of junior rugby league. It is going to be quite a sight.
