Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs Steve Turner, Aiden Tolman, Trent Hodkinson and head conditioner and 2004 Grand Final winner Tony Grimaldi will spend the next three days in Adelaide as part of the NRL's annual Community Carnival.
The group depart Sydney on Tuesday morning with a packed schedule ahead of them, which includes hosting a local Camp Quality family on a visit to the Adelaide Zoo, as well as hospital and school visits and community Rugby League clinics.
The visit follows on from the Bulldogs highly successful trip to the city in 2010, where the Club held a number of very well attended clinics before beating the Melbourne Storm in front of a crowd in excess of 10-thousand people at the Adelaide Oval.
The Bulldogs will once again return to the city in 2011, playing the Storm in round 18 of the NRL season, on the weekend of July 8-11.
In addition to their community camp duties, Grimaldi will ensure that the players continue their physical preparations for the 2011 season by training them at Hindmarsh Stadium during their stay.
