Huddersfield Giants fans would love to see their heroes fed on raw meat.
But when it comes to their own appetite, they were delighted to see the Giants players serve up dishes of chicken and chips.
Players from the John Smith’s Stadium Super League club donned their aprons to take over the Huddersfield branch of the restaurant chain, Nando’s.
And their efforts at waiting on tables, welcoming customers and cooking the restaurant’s signature dishes went down very well with the supporters.
They paid out to be served by the players with the proceeds from the event going to the Huddersfield Giants Community Trust based at The Zone.
The Trust organises community sports and education events at the centre off St Andrew’s Road and in the past 12 months has provided fun for some 60,000 people.
The event was a repeat of last year’s inaugural evening and was again hailed a success by the club and the Claret and Gold fans.
The team are training hard for their opening fixture of the 2015 season, when they host Hull FC at the John Smith’s Stadium on Sunday, February 8.
