BULLDOGS players helped build a classroom and ran footy clinics for children during their recent week-long visit to Papua New Guinea.
First grade players Mitch Brown, Martin Taupau and Brett Lane, up-and-coming players and club staff were on hand to assist on projects in education, health and rugby league development, in New Ireland's provincial capital of Kavieng.

They also talked to school children about the importance of getting a good education.
2012 Toyota Cup captain Moses Mbye said the experience had a huge impact on him.
"We were there to promote the game to these villages through sports clinics but also to enforce the importance of staying in school and working hard," Mbye said.
A PNG Tourism Promotion Authority spokesman said the visit would provide positive exposure for the island nation.
