All Blacks Sevens players help out at local charity
On the field, they play with a ferocity that will scare off most men.
But off it, these burly members of the All Blacks Sevens team - Tone Ng Shiu, Sam Dickson and Vilimoni Koroi - were all "soft" and smiley as they opened their hearts to help local charity Food From The Heart pack food hampers for the underprivileged elderly in Geylang Bahru on Wednesday.
The event was organised by AIG Asia Pacific Insurance (AIG Singapore).
The All Blacks Sevens are among the 16 sides competing in the HSBC Singapore Rugby 7s tournament this weekend at the National Stadium.
The players and volunteers from AIG Singapore and Uber later distributed a food hamper each to 20 households.
It did not matter that the elderly beneficiaries had no idea who they were.
"It is a meaningful event and I am happy to contribute," said Ng Shiu, 22.
