    Just prior to Christmas my younger Sister was diagnosed with terminal cancer. She underwent major surgery 3 days before Christmas and is struggling. I may have mentioned it before(apologies if I have) but honestly 1 of the first comments She made when told of Her situation was "I won't get to see Sione play Origin". I know players quite often go out of their way to meet with fans who are struggling but when it happens to 1 of your own and you get to see first hand the enjoyment they can bring to someone it's brilliant. This morning thinking She was being taken to K Mart Her friends had contacted the Knights and organized a meet and greet with Sione. He didn't sign Her shirt, pose for a photo and get on his way He spent almost half an hour with Her and as a result for 1 day at least the thought of not being around much longer was pushed aside. I really do appreciate the effort made by our Club, Sione and my Sister's Friends to make this happen.

    Would of been a very good feeling for ur whole family to see her happy and smiling without the back thought for a moment.

    Hopefully the knights and Sione provide many more smiles throughout the yr!

    Sorry to hear about your sister, Beaumont. Great to hear that Sione was able to put a smile on her and your families faces. The Knights have always been good at giving back to the community.

    Terrible news but so happy to hear she has a great day with one of her idols.
    Great to see some players caring about the fans and not just doing it for the publicity.
    Thought are with your family mate

    Sione organized for my Sister to go to today's game, box, meet the players the works. Because of health issues She's actually never been to a game until today. Really a classy young bloke and very proud of our Club.

    I don't know what to say mate, that's heartbreaking for you guys.
    I'm glad the boys got a win for her today, bloody Sione, he's the salt of the earth for this one. That's awesome
