THE Cabramatta Two Blues did their part for the Men of League Weekend by wearing commemorative Men of League socks on Sunday to show their support.

The Sydney Shield and Ron Massey Cup teams wore the socks in their games against the Auburn Warriors at New Era Stadium, Cabramatta.

NRL teams Cronulla Sharks, Manly Sea Eagles, North Queensland Cowboys, Brisbane Broncos and Canberra Raiders donned socks across the weekend.

All money raised over the weekend goes towards providing welfare and support to those in the rugby league community who are doing it tough.

Men of League chief executive Corene Strauss said: "Since its inception Men of League has carried out an average of 160 welfare visits a month, spending on average $2600 on each recipient, but we cannot continue to do this without the support of the rugby league community."

NRL chief operating officer Jim Doyle said Men of League provided invaluable help to players at all levels.

On the field, Cabramatta drew 34-34 with Auburn in the Sydney Shield and lost 54-28 to Auburn in the Ron Massey Cup.
