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!”
