BRISBANE Broncos trio Corey Norman, Denan Kemp and Josh Hoffman helped boost the excitement level at Waterford Demons' junior sign-on day on Sunday.

While the parents helped their children register for the upcoming winter rugby league season, the three Broncos stars were busy signing autographs and getting their photos taken.

Waterford president Mick Sparey said the kids got a huge kick out of their appearance.

“It's great to see the Broncos coming out supporting junior footy and giving something back to grassroots football,” he said.

“They (children) get a real buzz out of it.

“They're able to get a few things signed and a few photos, it's great.”

The visit from the Broncos players was the shot in the arm the club needed after finishing 2010 on a tragic note.

The tight-knit football club was rocked by the death of an under-14s player during an end-of-season trip at Hanging Rock Falls, northern New South Wales, in October.

Mr Sparey said the boy's team-mates have all coped well during the tough period and will dedicate this season to him.

After visiting the Demons home ground at Meadowbrook, Norman, Kemp and Hoffman, who are currently in the thick of pre-season training, headed to Logan Central, where they were greeted by hundreds of Logan Brothers juniors.

Waterford Demons are hosting sign-on days this Saturday and Sunday between 10am and 2pm. The club is located on Armstrong Road, Meadowbrook.
