Scott Hill living the Storm values
During his career with Melbourne Storm Scott Hill learned a lot more than just how to play rugby league.
Those lessons he was taught off field have now seen the former five-eighth set out on a heartfelt journey to help those in need.
Hill played 177 games for Storm between from 1998-2006 in a career that earned him both Origin and Australian honours.
It has been 11 years since he last pulled on the purple jersey but Hill is still living the Storm values every day.
The 40-year-old owns a business called Combined Coastal Removals and Storage located in Noosa.
He has teamed up with local charity SunnyKids and Blink Living to deliver furniture to victims of domestic violence.
So far 10 families have been helped through the initiative.
"A house becomes a home when there is furniture inside,” Hill told the Sunshine Coast Daily.
"It's really rewarding to see the smiles on faces when they know they have a warm bed to sleep in and a table and chairs to share dinner.
“Without a doubt being at Melbourne definitely shaped and changed me. I was very fortunate to be there virtually my whole career and under Craig Bellamy for four years.
"Those attributes and key values were ingrained in me as a person. Hard work, sacrifice, and you talk to any player who has gone through the club and they say the same.
"I am still very connected to the club being a life member. I've never valued myself differently to non-rugby league players.
"When you are running a business it is nice to give back.”
