Billy Slater’s ‘small gesture’ that thrilled young Leeds fan

It might only be a chat or a signature, but these small gestures lasted long in his memory.

The Melbourne Storm fullback got a chance to return the favour for another young fan on Friday night.

Leeds Rhinos fan Neil Robinson and his son William had travelled 16,000 kilometres to watch their side get beaten 38-4 by a rampant Storm team at the World Club Challenge, but stayed after the full-time siren went to engage with both teams as they walked past.
