League legends on a mission of charity

HOGS for the Homeless is an adventure like no other - three rugby league legends riding Harley Davidson motorbikes for 2500km while raising money for charity.

Blues legends Brad Fittler and Nathan Hindmarsh and former Eels winger Eric Grothe Jr are on a mission.

They have been collecting money for Father Chris Reilly's charity, Youth off the Streets, but they are also spreading the word about the greatness of the NSW Blues.

They believe it is the duty of every NSW resident to back the Blues during this year's State of Origin series.

They reinforced the message at a breakfast at Lennox Head this morning, where they met with young players from the Lennox Head Dolphins Junior Rugby League Club.

The kids were excited to meet their heroes and the club put on a barbecue to celebrate the occasion.

Hogs for the Homeless will finish up in Tweed Heads.

Fittler, Hindmarsh and Grothe will then ride into Allianz Stadium on Thursday before the season opener between the Roosters and South Sydney.
