Kids have ball with Canterbury Bulldogs at Yeppoon clinic

RUGBY LEAGUE: THE Canterbury Bulldogs visit to Central Queensland wound up last night with players Corey Payne (pictured) James Graham, Josh Jackson, and Moses Mbye holding a rugby league clinic at Yeppoon's Webb Oval.

More than 100 children from schools and rugby league clubs in the Capricorn Coast area attended the clinic, where the players drilled their new charges with ball, tackle and general footy skills.

Many of the children at the event were Bulldogs fans and wore their Dogs supporters gear proudly in front of some of their football idols.

The visit to CQ, which also involved school visits and another football clinic at Browne Park earlier this week, was part of a NRL initiative where players from 11 of the 16 NRL clubs were sent to New South Wales, Queensland and Tonga to deliver rugby league's new Tackle Bullying message as part of the 12th annual month-long Community Carnival.
