Little stars learn from NRL legends

Together them they ran out for a State of Origin match 50 times.

They were also mainstays in the Kangaroos side for a decade.

Yesterday they traded the bright lights of Suncorp Stadium for a training clinic at Eastern Suburbs.

Nathan Hindmarsh and Petero Civoniceva ran a coaching clinic at Eastern Suburbs as part of an NRL come-and-try day.

Eastern Suburbs Rugby League Football Club vice president Mark Fowler said he was delighted to have two players of the calibre of Hindmarsh and Civoniceva.

"They're definitely two of the bigger names we've had down here (at the club)," Fowler said.

"Those two guys have done so much in the game and there's been a real buzz at the club with them coming along.

"I just hope the kids can get out there, enjoy it and learn a few skills."

As part of their visit to Warwick, the duo yesterday visited multiple schools in the region.

They will visit Millmerran today before visiting schools in Clifton tomorrow.
