Part of this sponsorship package included an opportunity to spend a pre-match preparation with the sponsor's chosen player.
A donor paid for a sleeve sponsorship and kindly donated the spot to Epilepsy Action Australia.
Wests Tigers and Western Suburbs, in conjunction with Epilepsy Action Australia, then offered one young child with epilepsy the chance to meet the players from both the Western Suburbs Magpies AND the Wests Tigers!
That young lady is Ellee-Rose Bessenyei, who we caught up with this week before she joins the boys on Saturday as Western Suburbs face Guildford and the Wests Tigers take on Canberra.
