Lion home for Aussie rules clinic

AUSSIE RULES: Bundaberg's Emma Zielke is a person who delivers on a promise.

In November, Zielke told the NewsMail she would return to the region to host a clinic if The Waves and the new AFL Wide Bay women's competition got off the ground.

Now, she will, with a clinic to be held next Wednesday at Frank Coulthard Oval.

"I'm coming back to see the family for Christmas next week,” she said.

"My sister (Skye) has signed up to The Waves and been updating me with how its all going.

"She said come down one day and do something if I can.”

Zielke said the day was open to anyone including the Brothers Bulldogs and the other sides from Hervey Bay and Maryborough.

"What we want to do is invite all clubs and players to be involved,” she said.

"It will be kind of organised in the same way we run sessions at the Brisbane Lions.

"We will be doing skills, games, fitness and it is open to anyone of any age.”

Zielke will also spend time making sure her sister is ready for the game.

"She wants to pick it up,” the Lions captain said.

"I was asked to bring my boots up so I'm going to test her this week.”

The clinic will start at 8am and is free.
