Big hit­ter is re­ally a gen­tle­man

Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT -

THE full­back for the Tigers Rugby League team is a gen­tle­man who is as hard-hit­ting as any on the footy field.

His gen­tle way off the field is left on the side­line when Ben Al­lan runs on the pad­dock for Mun­dub­bera and he has been recog­nised with the Se­nior Sports Award.

When Al­lan puts the pads on and walks out to the cen­tre of the cricket pitch, his bat in hand, his op­po­si­tion all move a lit­tle closer to the bound­ary.

He is a big hit­ting bats­man who never seems to get out.

Allen has rep­re­sented Mun­dub­bera and North Bur­nett through­out his life in all sports.
