SOUTH Sydney Rabbitohs made the most of their visit to the West Coast on Saturday to compete against the New Zealand Warriors at the new Optus Stadium.

In the run up to big game, the National Rugby League (NRL) players hosted free sports clinics for schools and gave away oral health packs to children at Midvale and Forrestfield primary schools.

Rabbitohs players Kyle Turner, Connor Tracey, Siosifa Talakai and Mawene Hiroti visited the schools last week.

The NRL works in partnership with the Local Aboriginal Medical Service and Colgate to empower young children to take charge of their health and hygiene.

A 2017 report by the toothpaste brand last year revealed 60 per cent of parents struggle to get their children to brush their teeth twice a day and many children are not encouraged to floss.
