Strong turn out at Coffs meet and greet

While the rain turned a planned junior clinic into an indoor meet-and-greet session, it didn't dampen the enthusiasm of hundreds of Coffs Coast kids as they mingled with the Sharks squad on Tuesday night.

Having made the Coffs Harbour region a home away from home since 2021, the team felt the love from the locals while posing for photos and signing autographs ahead of Friday night's clash with the Titans at C.ex International Stadium.

As part of a Telstra Footy Country Series initiative, Cronulla halfback Nicho Hynes, captain Cameron McInnes and recent retiree Dale Finucane presented training gear to the Coffs Harbour Comets Junior Rugby League Club.

The NRL premiership trophy was also on display, with the Telstra Footy Country Series celebrating and supporting regional areas that give so much to the game.

The players spent more than an hour sitting at tables and connecting with a long line of fans, who came away from the event delighted at meeting their idols.

"It was unfortunate that we couldn't proceed with our Junior Jaws footy clinic due to the inclement weather, but the players were still able to provide unforgettable experiences by happily giving their time and energy to the youngsters," Sharks Head of Community & Government Relations Vinh Tran said.

"The Coffs Coast is our second home and the boys love interacting with the people up here. We look forward to seeing the locals throughout the week."

After an intense training day on Wednesday, the Sharks will welcome Members to an open captain's run session on Thursday morning.
