Billy Slater makes young Leeds fan’s dream

Billy Slater turned a Leeds Rhinos fan’s trip to Australia an unforgettable one by giving the youngster his World Club Challenge winners medal.

Melbourne Storm beat Leeds 38-4 in the 2018 World Club Challenge at AAMI Park on Friday.

And after the game, Slater handed the youngster his winners medal, making it a trip of a lifetime him.

Slater told NRL.com: “I just saw them during the game – the Leeds Rhinos fans – and thought how far they had travelled to come over and support their team.

“I thought it was fitting to give one of the young fellas a nice little memento to go home with and something he’ll probably remember for the rest of his life.

“I remember interactions with NRL players when I was growing up. Things like that can make a big difference.”

It’s hard not to like the Australia star, isn’t it?
