Hazel’s mom took a picture of her with her arms up like a terrific advocate and shared it on the club’s Facebook page.

From there, the adorable photo was picked up by AFL Riverina before it went completely viral on social media and was shared by various Super Netball players and clubs, who couldn’t get enough of little Hazel.

“So we set out to play netball with them on, not expecting her to play a game of netball.

“All of them (other netball clubs) have shared it (the photo), then their friends have shared it and it has gone international. I have been receiving messages from all over the world, people just congratulating me on my divine son, who could easily be anyone’s son.”

The adorable photo caught the attention of Melbourne Vixens star Kate Moloney, who sent Hazel a video message and arranged a netball clinic and free tickets to a Melbourne Vixens game for her team.

And within days, the Vixens and Puma shipped training gear to TRYCFNC and their opposition, including a pair of running backs for Hazel.

“Hi Hazel, this is Kate Moloney from the Melbourne Vixens,” the Vixens center said in her message.

“All of us netball players loved seeing that photo of you playing netball on Sunday and absolutely owning it.

“But Hazel, feel free to wear whatever you want. We love seeing you enjoy your netball and we can’t wait to meet you.”

Super Netball clubs couldn’t get enough of Hazel who is the most wanted player in the league right now.

The NSW Swifts announced that the four-year-old would throw the ball into the center circle for their game against the Adelaide Thunderbirds on Sunday afternoon.
