Mother finds a lot of support in Capras WAGS group
HAVING a laugh and sharing stories was Nicole Crisp's focus when she established the Central Queensland Capras WAGS group recently.
A mother of three and wife to Capras player Brent Crisp, Nicole (pictured) said she was a little shocked that some of the player's wives and partners didn't know each other well.
"We're originally from Canberra and also lived in Sydney where Brent played for the Bulldogs and there was a real family-orientated environment there where everybody knew each other," she said.
"So I went to Walson Carlos and asked if we could organise something for the ladies at an upcoming game."
Nicole said moving to the area was one of the toughest relocations for her and having the support network of women made a big difference.
"We're all in the same position, we have to deal with them going away for games, turning up to games and it's nice to be able to get to know each other and have a good time together," she said.
"Some of the women I've met through footy have become lifelong friends."
Nicole, with the help of assistant coach Damien Seibold's wife Zoe, set up a Facebook page so the women could stay connected and organise to meet.
Nicole said the first WAGS meeting would be at the Capras home game on May 17.
