Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : July 23rd 2009
44 INNER WEST COURIER, Thursday, July 23, 2009 MB Sport Inner West Courier Kids topped up bid Tigers star Dene Halatau with fans Craig Plain and his sons Cooper and Bailey at Concord Oval on Tuesday. Omar Hamwi WESTS Tigers fan Craig Plain's winning bid will help more people than he ever realised. He was the highest bidder in an auction for the Cancer Council's Call to Arms campaign, which gave him the chance to watch the Tigers at training on Tuesday. An avid fan, Mr Plain came down from Newcastle with his sons Bailey, 7, and Cooper, 5, to watch the players train at their home ground. ''I'm a serial offender with eBay auctions. I came across the auc- tion a couple of months ago and saw it was for a good cause, so I bid,'' Mr Plain said. His $650 bid was the highest, so he brought his sons along with him to meet the players and have jerseys signed, with the money going toward the Call to Arms campaign. ''The bid was originally $611, but that was only for two people to watch the Tigers train. So I added a little more to the amount so I could bring both my sons,'' he said. ''I've been a Tigers fan for a while and I'm also a Magpies fan.'' The 32-year-old cement renderer said he follows John Skandalis while his sons look up to half-back Benji Marshall. This follows a Call to Arms fundraising match between the Tigers and Penrith Panthers last month, which raised more than $9000. The players wore yellow armbands, with a raffle sale going toward the Cancer Council's cam- paign to raise awareness for mens cancer and its treatment. Tigers forwards Corey Payne and Keith Galloway are the club's Call To Arms ambassadors.
