Cross is top of his league

Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT -

MUN­DUB­BERA ju­nior sports­man Daw­son Cross ex­cels at ten­nis, swim­ming, ath­let­ics, soft­ball and touch foot­ball.

But rugby league is his pas­sion.

In 2012, Cross re­ceived the Cen­tral Bur­nett Brumbies best and fairest for­ward award, as well as the South Bur­nett un­der-13 rep­re­sen­ta­tive player of the year and the South Bur­nett U13/14 ju­nior Ea­gle player of the year awards.

He was the Mun­dub­bera rugby league foot­ball club’s best point-scorer.

And he was awarded the tro­phy for best achieve­ment in rugby league.

To cap off a suc­cess­ful sea­son, Cross was an­nounced as a mem­ber of the Cen­tral Queens­land NRL bid devel­op­ment squad.

Cross was also an­nounced as a mem­ber of the U14 North­ern Broncos Devel­op­ment Team.

Cr Faye Whe­lan said Cross showed com­mit­ment and ded­i­ca­tion to his sport.

“It also shows, if you have the skills and drive, it is pos­si­ble to get no­ticed when try­ing out for rep­re­sen­ta­tive teams,” Cr Whe­lan said.

“Even if you do live in a ru­ral area.”
