Residents of Aruma Lodge yesterday morning kicked off Grand Final weekend with a bacon and egg breakfast served up by the Bulldogs and the Roos.
Donning their South and North colours, the residents were served bacon, eggs, fried mushroom and tomatoes.
Aruma Lodge’s facility manager, Dayna Whitelaw, said they all enjoyed themselves.
“It was lovely,” she said.
On hand for the morning’s festivities was resident Lance Wright who has a long history with the North Football Club.
“He’s a real veteran supporter and used to be a trainer down the North footy club for many years,” Mrs Whitelaw said.
Also eager to cheer on her favourite football side was Jean Dolan, a one-eyed South supporter.
She said her late husband played for the Kangaroos but that he only lasted one game because he kicked the ball to the opposition.
