    I'm assuming that was your email shared on the Knights website @Beaumont ?

    Really well put mate. Condolences to the family

    Definitely pulled on the heartstrings, that email. In the current NRL climate, Sione’s good deeds for one of his fans is a welcome story. Thanks for sharing @Beaumont. Best wishes for your family.

    Yea Mate it was. I've only ever mentioned it on here but got sick and tired of the idiots in the game making the front page and thought I'd let them know there's plenty of decent young blokes involved in the NRL. I wasn't looking to make it public but Nathan Ryan suggested supporters would like to see the story.

    Thanks for sharing again @Beaumont

    Puts things in perspective, What happens on the footy field pales in comparison

    I know I've spoken to you before but just wanted to say again I'm so sorry for your loss mate

    I'm glad that Sione's actions have bought some comfort to you and your family

    Just wanted to add my voice to pass on my sincerest condolences Beaumont and thank you for sharing this deeply personal story...in a world where people are focusing on negativity and the worst in people, it is nice to show the generosity of spirit that exists through people like Sione.

    Your sister's story is inspiring and I hope that is some comfort for the family to know and remember that, through such tough times and with all that was going on, she still had the opportunity to enjoy and celebrate life...they are truly memories to cherish.

    It seems he has been with us forever but still so young, not many have stuck with us over the last 3 years it would be nice to think that some rewards for effort have rewards, could he be a regular in our 17 that finishes well up, final 8, at season end. We love our imports, top players, Klemmer, Pearce, Ponga etc but tend to forget our locals, even knock them, it’s not just Sione but all the others, locals that have kept the club going. We should embrace and encourage them, wish them well with us or other clubs. Hopefully effort will be rewarded but if not at least appreciated by all of us. He might not make it but it won’t be lack of effort on his part.
