Canberra Raiders Meet And Greet Opportunity
Canberra Raiders players will swap their footy boots for thongs and boardshorts at Alexandra Headland this Friday, January 10.
The bushfire crisis forced the Raiders to shift their pre-season preparations to the Sunshine Coast.
Last year's NRL grand-finalists will hold a meet and greet with fans at Alex Surf Club from 5pm tomorrow (Friday)
General Manager of Alex Surf Club, Ashely Robinson said some of the players will then head down to the water and take on athletes from the Nutri-Grain Ironman Series.
"We've got a reunion between Owen Pallister and Raiders forward Iosia Soliola.
"Owen was 16 when he saved him (Soliola) a couple of years ago while they were doing a beach session," Robinson said.
Robinson said the meet and greet is open to the community and looked forward to seeing a sea of green in attendance.
