When you’re born into a Cowboys-mad family, it’s only logical that you become a member and support the boys of the North – and starting young was certainly the case for Mackay tiny-tot Emmett Burgess, born premature at just 35 weeks.
Home Star member and now mother of two, Taryn encountered some complications late in her pregnancy which meant Emmett was delivered by emergency c-section.
“He was a very small baby weighing 3lb 6oz (1.53kg), and he spent three and a half weeks in the special care nursery before we were allowed to take him home,” Taryn said.
“Mark [husband], Penny [daughter, 2] and I are all members, so when Emmett was born, it was only natural that he become a member too.
“We’ve always followed the team, so having a membership and supporting the club seemed like the logical thing to do.”
