Rugby league gets behind Daniel Anderson fundraiser

The rugby league community is coming together to raise funds for one of the sport’s great servants Daniel Anderson via a silent auction and fundraiser event being held on Friday 7 July.

The 56-year-old suffered a spinal injury whilst bodysurfing on the Central Coast last December that left him a quadriplegic.

He is now in the midst of a challenging rehabilitation journey and ultimately hopes to return to his recruitment role with the Roosters in some capacity in the future.

Anderson coached the Warriors to a Grand Final appearance in 2002 before making the move to St Helens where he won three consecutive Challenge Cup Finals.

He returned to the NRL in 2009 with the Eels and coached the side a Grand Final appearance the same year before parting ways with the club at the end of the following year.

A luncheon will be held at Royal Randwick racecourse along with a silent auction and raffle on Friday 7 July with all money raised going towards Anderson’s fund.

The auction, which closes at 5pm on Friday, consists of over 40 incredible prizes and experiences including signed rugby league and rugby union jerseys, a baggy green signed by Nathan Lyon, and a round of golf with Braith Anasta and Cooper Cronk among a tonne more which can be bid on here.

Raffle tickets are also being sold for $20 each, three for $50, or 10 for $100.

The NRL have also dedicated Round 25 this season – headlined by a Friday night clash between the Eels and Roosters at CommBank Stadium – as a fundraiser for Anderson.
