Canberra Raiders prop Sia Soliola sees things through others' eyes

Post by Cranky Old Man » June 18, 2019, 10:57 pm

It has come to my attention that Sia Soliola is once again taking part in the Vinnies fundraiser to counter homelessness here in Canberra on Friday night. He is a very admirable man with his good work off the field, and perhaps some of you might be in a position where you could make a donation by sponsoring him.
I shall have a small part to play in the night, but will sleep in my own warm bed.

Sia is a genuine good guy. I love him. I really hope that, when he can no longer play, the Raiders keep him around in some capacity. He's an excellent role model.

He’s already exceeded his target of 2 grand too, what a quality human being.

Canberra Raiders prop Sia Soliola sees things through others' eyes

After a night roughing it at the Vinnies CEO Sleepout at Canberra Airport, Soliola headed to Canberra Raiders training on Friday with an added appreciation of his own life.

"Vinnies set up a roleplay where you play a real-life scenario that could happen and you're trying to put yourself in similar shoes to what people go through. Domestic violence was the scenario I got and it felt very real.
