Jake and Tom Trbojevic, along with brothers Ben and Luke, have kicked some big goals in #sport — and supporting them every step of the way are their parents, John and Melissa. In this episode of SportsParenthood, this proud and humble mum and dad reflect on Tom’s backyard cricket antics, Jake’s short-lived soccer career, the influence of their local footy club, The Mona Vale Raiders, on all four boys — and their most “surreal” moment as sports parents. In no mean feat, Tom and Jake currently play in NRL for the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles, have represented the NSW Blues in the State of Origin and worn the green and gold for Australia. Even if you’re not a rugby league fan, you’ll love hearing what John and Melissa have to say about #sportsparenthood, including thoughtful advice for fellow sport parents, and the one thing John wished he’d never said to Jake.
