The Kangaroos have been big supporters of the Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal and have been strong drivers of the AFL’s Good Friday game.

Young Zane revealed he was born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome.

“I was born with half a heart, which means I don’t have a left ventricle,” he said.

“So my right ventricle has to pump all the blood around my body. It’s a bit tough sometimes because you don’t get to run as much and I get puffed pretty quickly.”

Asked if he was a Kangaroos supporter, Zane revealed he had no choice.

“I’ve been a North supporter since I was born, a fifth generation North supporter,” he said.

“My grandfather grew up in North Melbourne and always gone for North.”
