Newcastle Knights Tariq Sims, Dave Fa'alogo and Brock Lamb shared plenty of laughs when they visited St Paul's in Gateshead as part of the month long NRL Community Carnival on Friday.
The players called into the Primary School to spread the message of health and wellbeing to students.
"We had a bit of a chat about being healthy and how good our game is," Sims told Knights TV.
The NRL run program sees the students watch an educational video and play games that promote an active and healthy lifestyle.
"The kids have made it so much easier with their bubbly faces and funny questions," he added.
Dave Fa'alogo enjoyed getting out in the community and was pleased to see such a positive reaction from the students.
"They were really enthusiastic and energetic and that's what we love to see," Fa'alogo said.
"We like to see they are taking the message on board and enjoying what we came here to do."
