Local boys on
the world stage
RENMARK triplets George,
Konstantinos and Chrisovalantis Hajis
experienced something rare when they
acted as flag bearers at the Australia vs
Saudi Arabia 2018 World Cup qualifying
match at Adelaide Oval last Thursday
The brothers were offered the role after
their mother Anastasia Kolcas won tickets
to the match at the National Premier
League game held in the Riverland earlier
Ms Kolcas said her sons relished the
chance to grace the famous Adelaide Oval
“They loved every minute of it out
there,” she said.
“They were excited and nervous at the
same time, but overall they really enjoyed
“They then got to come back to their
seats and enjoy the game.
“It was definitely an experience that
they will never forget.”
