A TEAM IN TUNE WITH SUPPORTERS
QTell me about the song you sing at the end of games. The players lock arms – win, lose or draw – and sing in unison to their supporters. It’s something you don’t see in sport that often. A few of you boys can really sing, too.
AThey can (sing). It’s a really beautiful song. I wish I knew more about it. The whole crowd gets involved. It talks about having pride, our home and how happy we are to be together. I don’t know the origins of it but it’s pretty special. We thank God. My first game with Penrhyn I got to sing it and got emotional. I had always heard it at games but never been able to sing with them. I stood there and thought: “Hey man, this is really nice.” There was good food; we always have big cook-ups no matter where we go. It’s just such a good feeling to be out there. I just want to let people know that we’re making steps to be a better team and doing really good things. It’s a wonderful time to be at Penrhyn.
