AFL star Drew Petrie cut an imposing figure at Virgin’s domestic terminal Saturday.
The former Kangaroo now Eagle was given an emotional send off by his wife and 2 kids as the big man embarks on a new career with the West Coast Eagles.
Petrie was the victim of a Kangaroo cull following a disappointing finals series from the blue & white stripes.
Former teammate Adam Simpson extended an olive branch to Petrie who will likely fill the ruck duties with Nic Naitanui sidelined due to a serious knee injury.
Petrie was chosen by the Eagles in Monday afternoon’s rookie draft.
