Special is what happens for Peta and Khobi Devine three days a week. Each time they reinforce the strongest bond of all: the bond between a parent and a child.
The mother and daughter are members of the Bulldogs women - that plucky group riding on an increasing swell of confidence in their debut season.
Two nights a week the Devines train together and then chuck on the red, white and blue on game day. It is a continuation of a tradition that now encompasses four sports.
They previously played together in league tag, oz tag and touch football - and were joined in those pursuits by Khobi's elder sister, Braie.
Braie joined them at the Bulldogs, but suffered a preseason knee injury that will keep her sidelined in 2020. However, she remains involved in the club - and Peta hopes to play AFL with her two daughters next year.
"That would be fantastic," she said. "I might be able to retire then."
Peta, 48, is a defender and Khobi, 21, is a ruck rover. Like most of their teammates, neither women had played organised AFL before this season.
Khobi said playing AFL with her mum had been "really cool". And she agreed that they had a wonderful relationship: "We're pretty close."
Overall, it has been a "rewarding experience" for a young woman who is constantly "inspired" by her mother.
"Anyone will tell you that she is probably one of our toughest players out there," Khobi said of her mother. "She'll go into any contest and not be too worried about it.
"She's always one of the ones to put a hand up and say something and help out. So it's great to have her on that field."
The Bulldogs travel to Inverell on Saturday searching for a fourth-straight win.
Khobi said: "This will probably be one of our toughest games ... I think we've definitely got the ability to get around them, but we'll have to show up."
