Walking past the changerooms

Hearing the noises of the teams getting ready

To play

The intensity of their

voices and

The passion they demonstrate

The view of the luscious green grass


through the rooms

surrounded by the smell of hot dog wraps

The atmosphere of the crowd


With enthusiasm as the first goal is scored

Looking around to the grandstand and supporters

To see them emerge from their seats

To celebrate and

Getting frustrated and emotional when something goes the opposing way

They witness the skill of young talent

Playing on the one and only

St George Stadium
