NRL star honours friend in unique way as he continues pledge to remember best mate

Queensland Cup star Liam Hampson sadly died in Barcelona during a fall in a nightclub in October with the horrific news that shocked the rugby league world and his best mate AJ Brimson has continued his promise to honour him.

Gold Coast Titan Brimson spoke at the time pledging to ‘dedicate his season and career to Liam’ as reported here.

In a nice touch off the field Brimson has teamed up with a restaurant to name a dish after his best mate with a percentage of profits also heading to the foundation set up in Hampson’s name.

The Gold Coast star revealed on social media: “Massive Thankyou to Glen and the team at @pancakesinparadise for helping me create the ‘Hampo Parmy’,” a social media post reads.

“Anybody who knew Liam knows he loved his parmis, to have his own one on the menu is something he’d love.“Percentages of Hampo Parmy sales will go to Liam’s foundation, so get down and try one at either the Surfers Paradise or Coolangatta restaurant!”

Brimson had previously spoken at his pals funeral, where he was a pall bearer and labelled Hampson as “family”.

“You were, and always will be, a big part of my family, to say ‘I’m going to miss you’ is an understatement.

“You were the most happy, honest, funny, loyal and loving person I knew. “I’m so grateful to have had the best time of our lives together, and nobody can take that away from us.”

Hampson had been holidaying abroad and Titan’s playmaker Brimson was with the 24-year-old when he sadly passed having lived together since the age of 20.

This is just the first step in his career goal of honouring Liam, but one that reflects Liam’s love of the “parmi” whilst also raising money for a brilliant cause.
