Wests Tigers have further entrenched themselves in the South West Sydney community as anticipation ramps up for the club's first trial game of the 2021 season at Kirkham Oval in Camden.
With three grades of footy shaping up for a perfect afternoon at the picturesque suburban ground, Wests Tigers continued to highlight its presence in the South West region with a range of community and football programs.
On Thursday, the entire playing squad hit the road to visit over 10,000 students across the Southern Highlands, Liverpool, Macarthur and Camden areas — visiting over 60 schools in the annual Community Blitz that continues to attract further interest each and every year. Players from the club's NRL, Harvey Norman NSW Women's Premiership and Wheelchair Rugby side helped run health and wellbeing interactive presentations and rugby league clinics across the schools on the day with the theme of the day for Wests Tigers to inspire health and wellbeing.
