Tariq Sims is a brute enforcer on the field, but has a heart of gold off it.
Just a day after it was reported that Corey Norman gave a young fan a lift home from the footy on Thursday night, a similar story has emerged surrounding the Dragons and NSW Blues back-rower.
Sims and the team were stopped at McDonalds on the way to Wollongong from Newcastle, and he was recognised in line by two young fans.
He chatted with them and got to know them in the line, before he told them to put their wallets away and paid for their meals in full.
If that wasn’t enough, he waited with the fans until they received their food, said goodbye and headed back to the team bus.
The parents of the fans reached out to Instagram page Clarkey’s NRL Column to tell them the story, saying that her boys will never forget it.
