Geelong Cats vs Richmond Tigers at The Gabba
“This is our MCG car park this year,” says “Catman”, aka Troy West.
The group is snacking on salami, dips, chips, and fruit. Kim Blair’s zucchini slice is long gone.
Why here, on the concrete and exposed to Geelong’s chilly afternoon winds?
“This is our home,” Ms Blair says. “This is where we belong today.”
New COVID-19 regulations in regional Victoria allow up to 10 people from different households to meet outside.
This means it’s the first time many in the group, most of them from the Cats’ cheer squad, have seen each other for months.
