NRL stars head back to school in Central QLD this month

CAMERON Munster, Rhys Wesser and Nick Kenny will take a step back in time when they return to Central Queensland this month.

Nostalgia may well be the theme of the day when the Rockhampton-born NRL stars pull on blue, white and red strips and return to the field where they honed their rugby league skills as teenagers.

Munster, Wesser and Kenny are expected to star in the "old boys" team when the inaugural Emmaus College Old Boys rugby league match between the old boys and Emmaus open gets underway on October 31.

Munster, who attended Emmaus from 2007-2011, has seen huge success as fullback for the Melbourne Storm this year and recently clinched Rookie of the Year and Best Back of the Year for the club.

Kenny, who attended Emmaus in the late 1990s, played as prop-forward for the Brisbane Broncos while Wesser, who attended Emmaus in the early 1990s, played as fullback and wing for the South Sydney Rabbitohs and Penrith Panthers.

The afternoon of rugby league fun will be held at Emmaus College and will feature live music, a jumping castle and a beer and wine bar.

Hot food and cold drinks will be available for purchase and entry is a gold coin donation.

Preliminary rugby league matches start at 4pm with a 5pm main game kick-off.
