MELBOURNE Demon's midfielder Colin Sylvia reckons swimming with a 5.5m saltwater crocodile is good fun - but only when a safety barrier separates him from certain death.
The 150-game Demon is in Darwin to tackle 22 footballers wearing Brisbane Lions jumpers at TIO Stadium on Saturday night. But for a moment yesterday Crocosaurus Park's resident saltie Chopper was his toughest opponent.
"I highly recommend it because it's a life experience being that close to a croc," Sylvia told the NT News.
But he had to be reassured the glass cage he shared with Darwin teammate Aaron Davey was Chopper-proof.
