AFL Live North Melbourne Kangaroos vs Hawthorn Hawks Stream AFL JLT Series 2017 Pre Seasons match will be kick off at Arden Street Oval Sports ground, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, Sunday 26 February 2017 online, 14.05 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
Sally Wood today told the Herald Sun she came from a strong family of North Melbourne supporters and had eagerly volunteered to ride the circus animal.
She was a die-hard cheer squad member who never missed a game with her family — her grandparents even hosted young North Melbourne kids recruited to the club.
North Melbourne had failed to track her down over the years, but after the Herald Sun made public their search she was unearthed.
“It will be 40 years next year. I was in the cheer squad and they asked if anyone wanted to ride an elephant and being a plucky eight-year old I put my hand up and said, ‘Me, me, me,’ she said today.
“I vaguely remember it was supposed to kick footballs. I just remembered getting on it, it running amok and everyone just scattering and me just hanging on.
“I got off and I felt like a bit of a rock star.”
