AUSTRALIAN rugby league legend Andrew Johns has been impressed with the hidden talents in the country.

Johns together with fellow former Australian Kangaroo Bred Fittler conducted a coaching clinic at the Mulomulo Primary School in Nadi last Saturday.

The coaching clinics were hosted by the InterContinental Golf Resort & Spa.

Kane Evans from the Sydney Roosters also lent a helping hand in assisting with the clinics together with InterContinental Fiji rising stars Etonia Nabuli and Seremaia Masitabua.

Johns was surprised with the high level of hand-eye coordination the children had.

"They are naturals," he said.

Following the clinics, InterContinental Fiji hosted a lunch for the children and the stars. The students thanked the National Rugby League greats and sang a few of their favourite songs.

The resort has been working with the school since it opened in 2009 and runs a long-term "Community Care" fund which finances numerous projects to improve the school.
