SOUTHCITY life member and rugby league devotee Fay Reed could count on one hand the number of Bulls and Turvey Park games she has missed over the past 43 years.
Well renowned and cherished as the game videographer, the 73-year-old diehard began her love affair with the club when her brother Norman Geaghan began playing for Turvey Park in 1970.
From her first introduction to rugby league, she was hooked.
"I get into trouble sometimes if I miss something for a game, but that's OK," she told The Daily Advertiser yesterday.
"I think I've missed one Southcity game since they became Southcity seven years ago, and that was for a christening.
"They made me a life member in 1989, just because I follow them every week, every away game."
As the NRL celebrates "Women in League" week, Reed has emerged as one of the most passionate and devoted rugby league fans in the sport.
Over the years, Reed has witnessed some rugby league's greatest players grace the fields at Harris Park and Eric Weissel Oval and rates the famous 1993 Lions premiership alongside Bulls' 2011 grand final as the finest moments.
In fact, Reed insists she began following Canterbury Bulldogs in the NRL after former Turvey Park players Greg Brentnall and Steve Mortimer were picked up by the Sydney team.
Nowadays, Reed rates Bulls stars Daniel Fitzhenry, Mitch Curran and Pete Little alongside the rugby league greats.
"I have heaps of favourites," she said.
"But my favourite player was Anthony Campbell, he went away to play for Canterbury for a season and then came back.
"The best thing I can remember is when Turvey Park won the 1993 grand final in all three grades, that was pretty special."
Maintaining the lineage through the family, Reed's sons Robert and Garry both played for Turvey Park as well as her grand children.
"I used to video my grand children playing right through until the seniors, and then I was asked by the seniors to video them each week," she said.
Every weekend, Reed can be found in the media box at Harris Park, volunteering her time for the sport and club she loves.
"I'll keep going until I can't," she said.
