From tackling to chasing and kicking, NRL Queensland regional officer Rodney 'Rocket' Dahl says it was a great morning.

"We had about 120 kids ranging from about under-fives to under-12," Dahl said.

The only negative was that there were no NRL players present to conduct the clinic, but Australian Jillaroo and Queensland State of Origin Touch star Chelsea Baker was one of the coaches.

"The NRL players could not make it because of NRL finals," Daghl said.

"We had tackling, evasion, kicking, side-stepping and other fun activities.

"The good thing was that there were people from other clubs involved in the clinic which was good to see."
