Lowe jet-skis — and plays romantic
FOOTBALL boots were out and sun, sand and watersports were in for Cowboys forward Ben Lowe and his girlfriend Emilie Nikoliasen during the off-season break.
The couple, who have been together for eight months, embarked on their first romantic holiday together at Long Island on the Whitsundays where they swum all day, ‘enjoyed a few beers and watched the sun set’ from their beach huts at night.
‘‘It was good to get away,’’ Lowe said.
‘‘It’s nice down there in the Whitsundays.
‘‘We spent a week and it actually cost me more than I thought . . . I lost my sunnies jet skiiing.
‘‘My girl was riding and I was sitting on the back. We hit a wave side-on and both launched off the jetski.
‘‘I couldn’t find the bastards anywhere.’’
The couple also spent some time on the Sunshine Coast and in Sydney where they visited Lowe’s older brother Jaiman, who was previously with the Cowboys but now plays for South Sydney.
