What will ‘Casho’ say when asked if Rugby has an image issue? Who has more pride and will fight for their sports right to claim Western Sydney’s favourite sport out of NRL’s Steve Mortimer and AFL’s Tom Harley? How will Johanna Griggs make her point in the always controversial topic of whether it’s harder to make it in as an individual sports star versus as part of a team?
All funds raised will go to Northcott Disability Services’ Recreation service, which provides children and young adults with physical disabilities the opportunity to get off the sidelines and involved in the sports they love.
