Knights' Trent Hodkinson takes terminally ill teen to prom

TRENT Hodkinson, take a bow.

The Newcastle Knights playmaker may not have had the greatest season, having been dropped from first grade for a large part of the year, but he has easily won the feel-good story of 2017.

On Wednesday night, Hodkinson escorted Hannah, a massive Knights fans, to her school formal.

Her school, Kurri Kurri High, brought the formal forward from the end of the year to the middle of July because Hannah has terminal Ewing sarcoma - a cancer found in the bones or soft tissue.

The NRL star rode in the back seat with Hannah on the way to the formal, held her hand as she walked in and even cut a cake at the event in front of everyone else in her year.

 

Scandal is never too far from rugby league, so it's worth noting the great things the code does.

As we say, Trent, take a bow.
