UN­HAPPY SNAP

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

HERE’S one to pull out at the 21st.

North Queens­land Cow­boy Gavin Cooper’s youngest son Reg­gie has had his first pho­to­graph taken with league leg­end Gor­den Tallis. Seems Reg­gie, 1, wasn’t so im­pressed with his brush with Tallis though.

Mum Te­nille Cooper said she couldn’t re­sist get­ting the snap at the Gor­den Tallis Cup, held in Townsville in July.

“My nephew was play­ing ... we popped down re­ally quickly and were leav­ing,” she said.

“Reg­gie was due for a sleep and then I spot­ted Gor­den and couldn’t re­sist get­ting a photo. “I knew he needed to sleep but I didn’t care.”

Te­nille said the photo was def­i­nitely one for the fam­ily photo al­bum. “I knew ex­actly what was go­ing to hap­pen,” she said. “It was only about two sec­onds.

“The mo­ment I handed Reg­gie over he started scream­ing so I snapped the photo re­ally quickly. I’m not sure if Gor­den even re­alised I was Gavin’s wife. One day I hope to get Reg­gie to meet Gor­den again when he’s much older and maybe we can recre­ate it!”
