Australian Rugby League development officers have promised to blitz Lismore in the days leading up to the trial match between the Gold Coast Titans and Parramatta Eels at Oakes Oval this Saturday, February 24.
The blitz will bring professional rugby league players into contact with as many children as possible before the game kicks off, and they have already been busy visiting school assemblies, holding skills clinics and signing footballs.
This culminates in a Come and Try Skills Clinic and Club Registration afternoon this Friday, February 23, from 3.30pm at Oakes Oval. This clinic will run alongside the Titans open training session.
Locals also have the opportunity to meet the entire Parramatta Eels team on Friday afternoon at Lismore Shopping Square from 4-5pm. From there the Eels will travel to Oakes Oval for an open training session at 5.30pm.
