Wolfmother join “solid cats” change room celebrations
Australian rock band Wolfmother surprised the players by joining in celebrations in the change room after the teams triumph over Fiji.
The group was lead into the room by Andrew Forrest, before joining the Force boys in singing one of their favourite songs ‘Joker and the Thief’.
Wolfmother jumped on stage for a third time after the final whistle with lead vocalist and guitarist Andrew Stockdale describing the energy of the night as infectious.
“I’m feeling great and I’m loving the vibe here,” Stockdale says.
“It’s contagious this energy, getting out there and playing at a sporting event.”
While celebrating in the Force change rooms after the game, Stockdale says he was glad the group were able to get everyone pumped up for the night and decided to play after the game even though they were not supposed to.
“We just thought we’d get in there and psych everyone up and get them in the zone,” the 41-year-old says.
Force wingman Brad Lacey said it was “unreal” to have Wolfmother celebrate with them after the game.
Whilst being slightly “intimidated”, Stockdale showed his respect for the Force players calling the them “solid cats”.
“It’s funny when you’re actually at the game and you see these guys, I wouldn’t want to be on a field up against that,” he says.
The rock band shook up the Force home ground NIB Stadium with hits like ‘Woman’, ‘Joker & The Thief’ and ‘Love Train’, as well as tracks from their 2016 album Victorious.
