Students get Origin fever | Gallery

QUEANBEYAN's primary school students got a taste of some of elite-level sport on Wednesday as the South Sydney Rabbitohs stopped in at Queanbeyan Public School.

Australian and Queensland legend Rhys Wesser, and NSW and Australian representative Matt King joined current Rabbitohs National Rugby League stars Beau Champion, Dylan Walker and Aaron Gray in firing passes and diving over the try line with Queanbeyan's stars of the future.

It was all part of the 'Souths Cares' initiative, with the club touring regional NSW to promote healthy living and rugby league for our state's youth.

As well as testing their footy mettle against their idols, the primary school students also got free dental check-ups with staff from NSW Health and the University of Sydney in partnership with toothpaste company Colgate.
