EACH year the NSW Touch Football State Cup draws huge crowds and some star players, including current and former NRL stars.

A regular in Port Macquarie is former State of Origin halfback Scott Prince, who turns out for Murwillumbah Mavericks.

He will again lace up the boots, and should be joined by the Bulldogs’ Jeremy Marshall-King (brother of Benji). Matt Moylan’s brother, Ben, is a touch football start and will be playing.

NSW Touch Football Association general manager, Dean Russell, said Prince and the likes are always a great draw-card.

“He loves playing touch footy. He grew up playing the sport and given his league career has finished he has come back to touch football,” he said.

“Prince has done so much positive work for the sport. He’s a drawcard for NSW touch at a competition like this and, along with out partnership with the NRL, it is fantastic.”

It’s highly unlikely we will see other players who would otherwise made an appearance, due to it being a Rugby League World Cup (RLWC) year.

He’s a drawcard for NSW touch at a competition like this and, along with out partnership with the NRL, it is fantastic.
