Can someone give Mal Meninga a call? We may have a new recruit for the national team.

In what may be one of THE most Australian scenes ever caught on film, a kangaroo has joined a footy game in regional NSW.

The Parkes Spacemen were briefly interrupted during their Sunday afternoon game when the roo, who they've imaginatively dubbed "Skippy", bounded across the pitch and right through the stunned players.

If not a new team member, a mascot for sure.
