Away from the football field, St George Illawarra Dragons players regularly go out of their way to help boost community spirit.
In recent weeks, social media has been abuzz with all the good deeds Dragons players have been doing of late.
These are their stories.
Bianca Peno – Charters Towers, Queensland – with Tariq Sims and Josh Kerr
"My son and I attended the Cowboys vs Dragons game last weekend. We took our seats about half an hour before the two teams came out to warm up. My son Ashton became quite upset over missing out on a high-five with [Cowboys mascot] Bluey and started to cry into my shoulder. The Dragons ran out to our end of the field and I noticed Tariq Sims look in our direction and pointed towards my son as he said something to Josh Kerr. Both players then came over and asked what was wrong and wanted to cheer him up. Tariq even asked if he could steal a snake lolly! Even though he was in a Cowboys jersey and they were both about to warm up for the season opener, this made my boy's night, and it goes to show just how much good league players can do when they're not getting dragged through the mud with allegations. Thank you Tariq and thank you Josh, you gave my son and I a moment to treasure for a lifetime!"

Sam Arens – Randwick Ronald McDonald House – with Zac Lomax
Marcus McDougall – Wollongong, New South Wales – with Tyson Frizell
"I would love to thank Tyson Frizell for his recent efforts at Ziems Park while watching the Woonona Bushrangers play. What an ambassador for the Dragons! He was happy posing for photos with all the kids. It's exactly the influence kids need from their sporting heroes. My son Tomi was one happy boy!"
