Warriors fans have been saying it all along, ‘2023 is our year… Up the Wahs!’
Now, our most beloved catchphrase is capturing the hearts of even the tiniest Kiwi sports enthusiasts.
In an interview with AM host William Waiirua, it appears one little girl has caught the 'Up the Wahs' fever too.
In the hilarious clip, William is chatting to a group of pint-sized FIFA Women’s Football World Cup fans. He asks who the youngins were supporting ahead of last night’s semifinal match between Australia and England.
The Birkenhead United AFC U8’s Heidi, Ruby, Avalon and Charlotte all agreed in support of England when young Coco threw a curve ball adding a mighty “Up the Wahs”.
I’ve never looked more proud than watching that moment unfold on live telly.
Even Warriors coach Andrew Webster said he had a grand old time watching the hilarious clip.
During a media interview on Wednesday, he said: "I just love where their focus is at…”
“That's awesome. I'm disappointed in the three before who didn't get the right answer."
He added: "One dad is very proud and three other dads are very disappointed."
Many Warriors fans flooded in support of Coco’s enthusiasm.
One commenter said: "Dads across the nation are proud of that kid.”
“This girl needs to run on the match ball for Friday,” another brilliantly suggested.
While a third simply stated: “F**k that’s gold!”
Too right. It's not just a catchphrase; it's a lifestyle and little Coco is living it up.
