Brothers juniors Pretty in Pink

PINK isn’t the usual colour that comes to mind when you think about rugby league but for Emerald Brothers White under-12s, it fits just perfectly.

The juniors donned the salmon-coloured attire in support of the NRL’s Women in League round at the weekend.

If the sight of their tiny pink outfits weren’t enjoyment enough, the Brothers players really pulled at the heart-strings on the sideline when the team gave three big cheers for their mums after the game.

“It was pretty special,” mum of one of the Brothers juniors Kim Lewis said. “A nice touch.”

While the socks were intended for the McGrath Foundation’s breast cancer awareness round in a few weeks time, Kim said the team decided to pull them out early for the Women in League round as well.

“We’ve had kids in our team who have been impacted by cancer,” she said.

“So even though we might be far away from where these events run by the NRL are held, we do still think about these things.”

For the record, Brothers also beat their Dysart opposition on the day by a comfortable margin.
