Perenara returns to NZ to promote unsung heroes of sport


Former NRL star and current referee Henry Perenara has returned to New Zealand to promote a campaign that will award a good sort with a 10 thousand dollar grant towards sports gear and equipment.

The campaign run by AA Insurance aims to support unsung heroes of all sports who volunteer their time and effort.

Henry Perenara gives credit for his success to his coaches at the grass roots level and old club the New Lynn Staggs, "they taught me a lot, pretty much 80-90% of what I know as a rugby league player, just being around this club it’s such a small club but just the bonds that you make with the people around it, it’s just great.”

The campaign also includes 20 minor prizes valued at 100 dollars.
