Here’s something to cheer about – free WiFi at the footy! MH creative director David Ashford took son Oscar to watch the Parramatta Eels take on Wests Tigers at Sydney’s ANZ Stadium, which thanks to Telstra, is Australasia’s first free WiFi venue. Discover how a little tech support can make a trip to the footy even more fun.
Ten-year-old Oscar breathes a sigh of relief on entering the stadium. He can relax . . . there is indeed free WiFi!
DAMNED LIES AND STATISTICS
As usual, Ashford spouts obscure sporting trivia. Oscar heads to the NRL website to check its veracity.
LET’S GO BOYS!
Devices down. Eels and Tigers take the field in a game in which two inconsistent sides need to get a result.
HOLD YOUR BREATH
Father and son are gripped as the Eels attempt to get back into the game after losing two quick tries to the Tigers.
Oscar is out of his seat, while Ashford unleashes the fist pump as the Eels
cross the line in style.
After a largely lacklustre showing by their team, spirits are lifted by the arrival of the half-time tucker.
STARS IN THEIR EYES
Look, dad, we’re on TV! Oscar catches himself on the big screen.
PLOTTING A GETAWAY
With Parra struggling, Ashford’s interest wanes. He uses the ANZ Stadium app to look at options for the trip home.
SELFIE MADE MAN
No point being at the game if you’re not going to gloat. Oscar hits Instagram to wind up his mates. #winner
