Leeds Rhinos star and World Cup teammates with fantastic gesture helping charity

The Rugby League World Cup is home to plenty of great stories.

Yesterday we saw one from Greece as they battled hard against England with four players from their domestic league in the side just months after the sport finally stopped being illegal in the country.

Meanwhile, the tournament has created a real togetherness in the sport with the men’s, women’s and wheelchair tournaments all taking place alongside each other with the PDRL World Cup also taking place.

But one of the best stories from the World Cup has taken place in the background and hasn’t been given the proper attention it should have.

This particular story saw stars from the Papua New Guinea squad help a homeless charity this week including their coach Stanley Tepend and captain and Leeds Rhinos star Rhyse Martin.

The Kumuls stars were handing out hot meals and drinks to the homeless in Manchester City Centre where the World Cup was launched and where it will concluded on November 19th at Old Trafford.

Papua New Guinea can wrap up their place in the World Cup quarter-finals with a win over Wales this week in Doncaster.

A win will set up a battle with England at Wigan Warriors’ DW Stadium in the last eight next Saturday as the dark horses of the tournament look to stun one of the favourites.
