A TEAM IN TUNE WITH SUP­PORT­ERS

The Weekend Post - - Sport -

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.
