Trent Hodkinson Takes Terminally Ill Girl To Her Formal

Newcastle Knights playmaker Trent Hodkinson showed yet again why he's considered one of rugby league's nice guys.

He took a 15 year girl with terminal cancer to her school formal last night at Kurri Kurri High.

Trent held Hannah Rye's hand as they walked into the event and they cut a cake in front of her classmates.

The school moved the event to July because Hannah may not make it to the end of the year.

Hannah, who's a massive Knights fan, suffers from terminal Ewing sarcoma - a cancer found in the bones or soft tissue.

It's always amazing when they take time from their schedules to make someone happy like this. It shows they really do genuinely care for their fans and want them to be happy, especially when they're terminally ill.
