Footy mum Jackie De Koning stole the show at the AFL Players Association Awards on Wednesday night when she recalled a story about getting drunk in a Bali bar while watching her two sons square off in a Geelong versus Carlton tussle.

The mother of 10 was asked by Fox Footy’s Kath Loughnan what it was like watching her boys on opposing sides – and her response was iconic.

‘We were lucky, we were drunk in a bar in Bali so it was OK,’ Mrs De Koning said, leaving the audience in hysterics.

‘Every time Geelong got a goal, we went “Yay!” and every time Carlton got a goal we went “Yay!”. It was great.

‘There was a whole table of Geelong supporters at the end that shouted drinks for us and they won, so we were happy.’
