What a surprise! Arriving at school on a wet Wednesday morning, everything is the same. My teacher was working away with most of Room 7 before the bell goes. I heard someone saying that the Warrior Players are coming to visit our school today. My ears pricked and I wanted to find out but no one seems to know.  
The bell rang and Mr Coakley, our principal, is telling people to go to the hall. I was really excited because I’m a staunch supporter of the Vodafone Warriors. 
As I entered the hall I saw the two Warrior players. They were Ken Maumalo and David Bhana who mostly play in the New South Wales Cup Warriors team which is the reserve grade for the Vodafone Warriors. I smiled with excitement.

They talked to the whole school and did a few games with us. They gave some children drink bottles and mini rugby balls. 
Later, they play a few drills with us. I really lucky to be the group that played with them. I enjoyed doing a few drills with Ken and David. We did some basic passing and running drills which will help us during a Rugby League game. I was also privileged to receive a small Warriors League ball. At the end, we had a class photo we them.  
Justin and I had the opportunity to talk with them and got them to sign our League balls.

It was a great visit!!! by Patrick
