On Saturday, 20th May Collingwood played Hawthorn. The evening began on a sombre note as the crowd paid tribute to the late Lou Richards. Now we know that Lou was the eternal prankster, and he would surely have enjoyed the Auskick invasion at half-time.
North Brunswick Centre was in the thick of it too, supplying 12 girls and boys for a grid game as well as a Collingwood player. As the parents helpers will attest, the energy levels in the rooms and on the ground were off the chart. See for yourself in the 2017 Auskick Gallery.
