PROUD AS PUNCH: Fiona Wood. Picture: Rob GunstoneYOUR heart is pounding.

It’s not the same feeling you’d experience if riding a rollercoaster, or at the pinnacle of a sweaty, cardio-intensive workout.

Instead, it’s coupled with a knot in your stomach. It’s coming. The final siren. Immortality.

You can almost feel the seconds tick down, as if each beat of your heart signals another step closer to the siren that would create history before your very eyes.

But you’re helpless. You can’t do anything but watch.

Hundreds of orange-clad supporters spread towards the exits at Spotless Stadium, in Sydney’s west. This is it. Your son is about to become the first captain in 55 years to lead the Western Bulldogs to an AFL grand final.

It’s sinking in. The boy from Gnotuk will lead the long-suffering Western Bulldogs onto the Melbourne Cricket Ground for the grandest day in club history.

For Fiona Wood, all of this became a reality in just two-and-a-half hours.

Back home, it’s not far past the crack of dawn and Fiona is out in the garden of her family home.
