Scott Morrison celebrates biggest win of his life with a beer while watching Cronulla Sharks

Life is good! Scott Morrison celebrates the biggest win of his life with a beer while watching his beloved Cronulla Sharks (but can’t inspire them to a comeback victory)

  • Scott Morrison has been met by cheering crowds at a home rugby league match
  • The prime minister led his party to victory in the federal election on Saturday
  • He and his daughter Lily were spotted at the game after a gruelling campaign

Scott Morrison has been met by cheering crowds at a home-turf rugby league match less than a day after he led his party to victory in the federal election.

The prime minister and his daughter were mobbed by football fans as they entered the Sharks Leagues Club decked out in the team’s official merchandise on Sunday.

After a gruelling few weeks campaigning alongside his wife Jenny ahead of the election, Mr Morrison said the day out with his eldest daughter was much needed.

A beaming Mr Morrison asked reporters ‘who’d miss this?’ before shaking hands and posing for selfies with Sharks supporters.

The Coalition leader has been a well-known supporter of the Cronulla Sharks NRL team and is the number one ticket holder at the club.  

He was spotted enjoying a beer and waving his Sharks scarf in the air at one stage, as fans took photos and cheered him on. 

But he couldn’t inspire his team to a win, with the Sharks losing 14-24 to an under-strength Manly Sea Eagles in front of 13,000 roaring fans. 

The Coalition defied numerous opinion polls to emerge victorious over Bill Shorten’s Labor Party on Saturday night.

‘I have always believed in miracles,’ he said after the win, adding that the ‘quiet Australians won a great victory.’

But behind the miracle was an almost faultless campaign – and a devoted family.

The foundations of Mr Morrison’s stunning come-from-behind victory were largely built on one key factor – the prime minister’s ability to sell a simple message: ‘A fair go for those who have a go’.

Throughout the campaign, Mr Morrison was front and centre, but behind the scenes, three ‘quiet Australians’ in particular helped in his ‘miracle’ victory – his wife, Jenny, and two daughters Abbey and Lily.

They were there throughout the election campaign, providing him with support and painting a picture to the Australian public of Mr Morrison as a devoted family man.

The father-and-daughter day out at the football comes after Jenny admitted the girls had missed Mr Morrison while he was campaigning across the country.  

‘They’re handling it really, really well. But they do miss Scott. They want their dad around a little bit more. And that’s the life of the campaign trail. It’s crazy, it’s busy, I’m away a little bit more, and that’s been the difference, I think. It’s one thing for Dad to be away, but mum’s been away as well,’ Jenny said at the time.
