JCU Townsville Fire Ambassador Glenn Hall has thrown his support behind Friday night’s inaugural Dads and Daughters game against the Perth Lynx.
Earlier today, the NRL premiership winner, who is now working in a support role for the North Queensland Cowboys, said he fully endorsed the concept and was looking forward to watching the Grand Final replay from the stands with his own daughter, Indiana.
“I’m a big fan of the Fire,” Hall said.
“One of the main reasons that I started to follow the Fire before eventually becoming an Ambassador was I because I love bringing my daughter here.
“The example that these girls set is unbelievable, but it was (also) a good avenue for me to be able to spend some time with my daughter…and show her that it’s not just dads or males that play sport.
“We’ve had some good old days here – especially after games, the girls do a great job with the fans when they come onto the court after games.”
With just two games separating first from sixth, the Fire will be desperate to return to the winners’ list, and in the process, tie up a series victory against the Lynx.
While Hall is looking forward to attending the game with Indiana, he stressed that it was also a family-affair.
“My daughter, Indiana, loves (coming along),” Hall said.
“The last few weeks when they’ve played here, Dad’s had a few things on and she wasn’t too happy.
“But I’ve got a young fella too, Hendrix, who is also a massive fan.”
The Fire host the Lynx at Townsville Stadium from 7pm on Friday.
