It was all about heroes when the Sharks visited the nearby community organisation Civic Disability Services recently.

The workers and clients at Civic gave the players a hero’s welcome when they dropped by, while the eight Sharks NRL squad members in attendance expressed their admiration for those who are making a considerable contribution to society through their efforts in the Civic workshop.

“Everyone is all around us and enjoying the moment,” Sharks new recruit Braden Uele said during the visit. “Civic is a great organisation.”

Josh Tuilagi was also more than happy to mix in and interact with the group, most of who were ardent Cronulla fans, with the Sharks young gun thoroughly enjoying the experience.

“To see the smiles on their faces and how grateful they are to have us here, really humbles us,” Tuilagi said.

Jayson Bukuya, Will Kennedy, Jack Williams, Kyle Flanagan, Briton Nikora and Bronson Xerri joined Uele and Tuilagi at the Civic meet and greet, with the players happily posing for photographs and signing autographs.

Civic is all about human potential, realised, in supporting people with disability to exercise choice and control in their lives, to achieve their goals and participate in the community.

They practice Person Centred Active Support and firmly believe that ‘every moment has potential.’

Thanks to Civic for allowing the Sharks to visit and also for the video production.
