Rugby league legends on the Tweed

Rugby league legends are visiting flood-victims in northern New South Wales today.

Blues coach Laurie Daley and Canterbury great Paul Langmack will tour the damage at Murwillumbah on Friday, after they spoke at a recovery forum at the Murwillumbah RSL in the morning.

Daley said having grown up in a rural community, he understands how important it is to band together in tough times.

"The recent floods have devastated the Tweed and surrounding regions and we will do whatever we can to lend a hand," he said.

Tweed Shire Councillor Pryce Allsop said the visit would help boost spirits among the community.

"I believe it'll boost the moral and given them a bit of a lift... to some of those people who've been through a lot, it'll probably mean a lot," he said.
