The day kicked off bright and early with both the NRL and NYC squads taking the field for an open training session, which was a treat for fans watching from the sidelines. The boys were put through their paces with agility drills, opposed sessions and an entertaining tug-of-war.
The party then moved to TC's. Happy fans streamed in, taking advantage of the beautiful warm weather and playing some touch footy while listening to the band. The kids quickly hopped onto both the jumping castle and Santa's knee. The Panthers Pass The Ball, OAK truck (with OAK giveaways and merchandise stand also proved extremely popular.
The hotly anticipated 2013 ASICS jersey was launched by captain Kevin Kingston and fans snapped up their own, in perfect time for Christmas.
The entire squad mingled casually with fans for over 2 hours, delighting fans who got the chance to chat to their heroes.
