The Topline Warriors reached out for the first time to the community in cleaning up the seven blocks of the Mead Road housing in Nabua yesterday.
Team manager Ravu Dansey said with their zero-crime tolerance policy, yesterday's event is a stepping stone for the boys and the community at large.
"It has also been an eye-opener for the boys to realise that they will be one day be future representatives of the nation and even future leaders," Dansey said.
He said the reps were willing to help in anything for the betterment of the team.
"Our plan is to reach out to other parts of the community and to show others that the boys are doing this for the community itself. We are trying to engage the boys in such community work so that they are not always blamed for any crime in the neighbourhood since they are always been looked down at by others," he said.
The Nabua-based club had more than 50 members of the team present during the clean-up.
"The team officials want to show the boys that they are not just a rugby league team but they are there as brothers and protectors of the neighbourhood," Dansey said.
