Over 200 Rabbitohs Junior Members and supporters were on hand at Mascot Oval yesterday (Tuesday) to take part in the Club’s Junior Holiday Clinic.
Rabbitohs players such as Dylan Walker, Chris McQueen, Aaron Gray and Cameron McInnes ran the enthusiastic group of kids, proudly wearing their red and green through a range of skills and drills in a morning of fun and games during the Easter holidays.
Issac Luke, Alex Johnston, Kyle Turner and Dave Tyrrell were also there on the day to lend a hand, gladly posing for photos as well as signing plenty of autographs.
Rabbitohs back-rower, Chris McQueen, was overwhelmed by the turn-out to the event and the level of South Sydney support on show.
“It’s amazing seeing this many young kids wearing red and green and having a bit of fun,” said McQueen.
“We have so much great support everywhere we go, so to get the chance to run these kids through some skills – it’s just another way that we can give back to the community and get up close and personal with the next generation of Rabbitohs.”
Asked if there were any potential Rabbitohs of the future at the clinic, McQueen was proud to report that there definitely were.
“They may just be between five and twelve years old, but there’s so much skill here on show today,” said McQueen with a smile.
“I saw plenty of good tackling today and some really quick boys and girls, so who knows, the next Adam Reynolds, Alex Johnston or Dylan Walker could be here today.”
