Tyrone McCarthy plants a small acorn in The Gambia

Recommended Posts

There's a set of rugby league goalposts in the small African country of The Gambia. Just one, that’s all.
They weren’t there three months ago. They wouldn’t be there now if it wasn’t for four men and their love of rugby league.
It’s the latest assignment completed by The Full Blood Project, a group of mates striving to improve the lives of people living in poverty around the world.
St George Illawarra recruit Tyrone McCarthy visited Africa on a volunteer trip in 2012 and it opened his eyes to the plight of those communities.
He contacted Rob Grifiths, Nigel Scott and Tom Whitehead who had been working with young rugby league players in Fiji and pitched his idea for a new venture.



Millions long for immortality who don't know what to do with themselves on a rainy Sunday afternoon. (Susan Ertz)
