The Cairns Post - - FRONT PAGE -

Cairns reps in­clude Cow­boys’ flyer Javid Bowen, Par­ra­matta coach Brad Arthur, Storm as­sis­tant coach Adam O’Brien and Bron­cos as­sis­tant coach Ja­son Demetriou.

Ma­reeba prod­uct and Cow­boys’ play­maker, Ben Hamp­ton, will fly the flag for the Ather­ton Table­lands.

His par­ents Mur­ray and Megan run the Coun­try Car­a­van Park, about 10km out of town.

Mr Hamp­ton said there was plenty of in­ter­est in town.

“Es­pe­cially at the park, a lot of them are from Vic­to­ria and they don’t re­ally get into a lot of rugby league, but they know when Ben plays they all switch on the telly,” he said. “Some­one al­ways makes a com­ment when you’re down­town.” FRI­DAY SEPTEM­BER 15 2017 CAIRN­SPOST.COM.AU
