Being a Newcastle Knights cheerleader is a lot more than waving pom-poms and chanting, according to Maitland girl and 2017 squad member Imogene Huthnance.
This season was the Lochinvar-raised disability care nurse’s first with the Knights, and she’s now encouraging other Lower Hunter girls to audition for the role.
“I’ve danced my whole life and I was looking for something else to meet new people and build my confidence,” Imogene, who won rookie of the year in her first season, explained.
“It’s something I never saw myself doing. I love the interaction with the fans and the volunteer work. I’ve had a really fun year.”
Auditions will be held at 6pm, December 12, at McDonald Jones Stadium, Broadmeadow.
