Broth­ers off to Syd­ney

Central and North Burnett Times - - RURAL WEEKLY -

BLACK­BUTT broth­ers Mitch and Jack Ar­gent love com­pet­ing in front of their home crowd, but the pair will have big­ger fish to fry at the Royal Syd­ney Easter Show.

Com­pet­ing against each other in the Nanango Show wood­chop event on Satur­day, the broth­ers were a mea­sure of calm ahead of ar­guably the big­gest wood­chop com­pe­ti­tion on the cal­en­dar.

“We’re headed to Syd­ney for the Royal Easter Show, there’s five world ti­tles (up for grabs) there and I’m com­pet­ing in two of them,” Mitch said.

“I’ll be in the un­der­handed and stand­ing block events. I’ve been train­ing pretty hard for the stand­ing block. I’ve made the fi­nal the last two years,” he said.
