Genaffer Petridis Zahra will be one of three ladies from Townsville playing AFL Masters at the Geelong National carnival, with Cath and Nelly too going for a kick.
Genaffer gave her introduction to AFL:
I married an AFL legend in 2007, Steve was an umpire at the time... in 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011 he coached at Thuringowa Bulldogs, it was awesome to be part of that footy family, I know some wonderful people down there.
In 2016 I decided to be part of that culture again so joine...d the ladies. Earlier this year I played for Townsville Eagles in Cairns and have been loving playing with the Thuringowa Bulldogs girls, unfortunately we went down to the Hermit Park Tigers in the Grand Final last weekend. I have been hearing about the AFL masters competition for years. Club men and their wives talk highly of their experiences on and off the field, so when I heard of the girls comp, had to be part of it.
From everyone at the Sharks we hope you have a great carnival. Thanks to "On the ball photography by Michelle" for the photo.
