From Switzerland as an Australian road cyclist, Waverley Park as a Premiership captain with Box Hill Hawks and Whitten Oval as a Bulldog, Emma Mackie’s decorated sporting journey has stopped at many decorations.
But it was the final destination which carried the most meaning, with the 35-year-old joining the club she had supported since she was a child.
The former Bulldog used to make the four-hour drive from Albury to Moorabbin with her brother, parents and grandparents to watch her favourite Saints Nathan Burke and Robert Harvey play.
Mackie took up Burke’s famous No. 3 and iconic helmet, making her debut at RSEA Park in the Saints’ inaugural match before injury limited her to just one more outing.
With the lifelong Sainter’s dream complete, Mackie called time on her career after Season 2020 was abruptly brought to a close due to COVID-19.
