Aussie rugby star wears charity socks
Brad Meyers of Australia's Gold Coast Warriors rugby league team will don a pair of fluorescent socks to raise awareness for testicular cancer, it has emerged.

In a report for, it was stated that the player will wear the bright funky socks after two of his friends were diagnosed with the illness.

Meyers hopes that the leggings he will wear, alongside the legwear his teammates and opposition will also sport, will open eyes to the Hang on To Your Mates campaign.

He said: "A group of mates and I got together and thought 'let's do something good'.

"It's one of the most curable cancers about, but we thought it would be good if we could make young people aware just to check themselves."

Brad Meyers was a member of the Bradford Bulls before moving back to the Gold Coast Titans, as well as originally playing for future charity opposition Brisbane.
