Storm players returned to the grassroots of rugby league this week, visiting 17 local clubs as part of the Storm in Your Club initiative.

A collaboration with NRL Victoria, the campaign aims to continue the growth of the footy code in Melbourne and highlight the benefits of playing the sport.

Wingers Josh Addo-Carr and Reimis Smith visited the Pakenham Eels on Monday night.

"I enjoyed it a lot - I loved meeting the kids and helping out the older grades," Smith said.

"I didn't think anyone would know who I was, so it was cool to have a few people know my name."

Josh Addo-Carr said he was impressed to see how much the club had grown since his last visit a few years back. 

"I came out to the Eels about five years ago when I first moved to Melbourne," he said.

"It's really good to see how many kids are moving through the system at this level now.

"We've had as much fun as the kids tonight."

It’s not too late to register for season 2021 and get involved at your local rugby league club.

Rugby league clubs across Melbourne are calling for girls to join their junior competitions in the Under 13, Under 15 and Under 17 teams.
