STREAKER HAS A T OTAL BARRY
BARRY Hall promised excitement in a one-off outing for his regional Victorian footy club The Basin, and the crowd got more than they expected — or perhaps wanted.
The 40-year-old AFL legend and reality TV star booted the first goal of the day and finished with four but his side went down by 46 points to Heathmont.
The highlight came after the final siren, when a local resurrected the almost-dead practice of streaking, making a beeline for Hall wearing only his socks.
In the shadows of the Dandenong Ranges at Batterham Reserve in Boronia, it would have been a chilly experience — and Hall laughed it off.
Interim Basin captain Luke Watson said: “We’ve got the old fossil coming down at the age of 40 but he’s still in pretty good shape ... It’s an absolute honour when you think about it ... you’re playing with a premiership captain.”
