It's not often you hear of a married couple playing in the same footy team together.
But Paul and Nicole Stokes have been kicking goals and spoiling marks for South Warrnambool Hurricanes since 2014.
"This team is one of the best teams I've been part of," Nicole said.
Playing footy isn't even her highlight.
"I just like when we go on a bus trip that we all can sit on the bus and we all can talk," she said.
"We don't act like we've got a disability.
"We're just like everybody else out in the community."
Nicole said she had been the team's only female player for numerous years before this season.
"The guys here don't treat me like a girl they just treat me like one of the teammates," she said.
Nicole said another female joined the side this season.
The fourth-placed Hurricanes have won two of their four matches in the Victorian FIDA Football League western conference this season.
FIDA stands for Football Integration Development Association and provide Victorians with an intellectual disability the opportunity to participate in competitive Aussie Rules.
The Hurricanes have an all-abilities finals carnival to look forward to in the middle of August.
Nicole said it was a great team atmosphere.
"When we have a game here we stay and watch South Warrnambool play and then we go home," she said.
"Even on the bus, we have our music going up the back and Damian (the coach) doesn't care unless it's got swear words in it."
For those wondering, October 27 is the special date for the sporty couple.
"We got married in 2007 and we've been together...," Paul starts.
"It's the 27th October so that he never forgets our wedding anniversary," Nicole chimes in with a laugh.
"That date is the same date that we met back in 2001," Paul says.
Meanwhile, Portland's Tom Keller is loving his first season of football.
He said his team had a big game coming up against Geelong Dragons on Sunday, July 28.
The side will travel to Geelong's Hamlyn Park for the fifth and final round encounter.
The backman said he decided to play because he just wanted to get involved.
"I wanted to play in a team," he said.
Keller would encourage others to pull on the boots.
"Yes, get all your mates," he said.
His family has been a great support to the first-year player.
"We've gone to the games and come over to Warrnambool each Wednesday to go to training," his father John said.
