Drought Relief Tour Day 3 - Charleville

Day 3 of the QRL's Drought Relief Tour saw the travelling party head to Charleville, home of Sharks player Kurt Capewell.

He was the star attraction at the Charleville RSL where the party stopped in for some dinner; with family, friends and fans coming by to say hello.

Earlier in the day, the group of players (which also includes former Queensland Maroons players David Shillington, Michael Crocker and Chris Walker) and QRL, NRL Development and Men of League staff split into groups; with some stopping in at Augathella State School to address the students. It was then off to Charleville High School to take part in a friendly touch game.

Walker and Capewell were also among those to took the time to call in at Tambo Teddies on the journey from Day 2's stopover Blackall to Charleville, seeing first hand how the toys are made (main photo).

The RSL proudly displays the framed jersey from Capewell's first appearance in Sharks colours when he played at the Auckland Nines in 2016.

Local Murweh Shire councillor, butcher and rugby league identity Shaun Radnedge told QRL Media about how it came to hang on the wall (pictured in gallery).

"He's very generous, probably in the last (few) years that he's been involved in Sharks he's given me about seven or eight jerseys that I have raffled off and that pays for fuel money for our (junior rugby league) kids to go anywhere," Radnedge said.

"It's much appreciated; he's a great kid, very generous – you only have to give him a call and what else can I say.

"That is his first (Sharks) jersey that he gave to us. We raffled that, and that paid for Under 14s to travel and play for all of that year.

"Since then, he's always been a very big supporter of our country footy."

The tour will visit Kurt's former school St Marys Parish school today (Thursday, October 18) before heading out to St George.
