Group XI con­tin­ues to soar above the rest

Dubbo Photo News - - Sport -

ON top of news that Sally Dwyer (Parkes) and Tel­isha Quinn (former Space­cat, now St Ge­orge Illawarra Dragon and World Cup win­ning Jil­la­roo) had been se­lected in the Prime Min­is­ter’s XIII to travel to Port Moresby this week­end comes word of Welling­ton Cow­boys pair Ty­rone Peachey (Kan­ga­roos) and Ko­toni Staggs (Ju­nior Kan­ga­roos) be­ing named to wear the green and gold.

The four tal­ented play­ers con­tinue a long line of in­ter­na­tion­als from the Group in­clud­ing Terry Fa­hey, Don Parish, David Gille­spie, Les David­son, Dean Pay, Nic Kosef and An­drew Ryan.

Throw in Blake Fer­gu­son, who on more than one oc­ca­sion played in and scored tries across each of the Cow­boys three teams on one day, and you have a pretty fair tal­ent pool to pick from.

Blake Fer­gu­son’s stature in the game grew af­ter a gutsy per­for­mance for Easts where he played 20 min­utes with a frac­tured leg af­ter be­ing named the NRL winger of the year!

Isaah Yeo (Dubbo) and Coon­am­ble duo Jesse Ramien (Cronulla) and Braidon Burns (Souths) were in town for the Knock­out while the three Sut­ton broth­ers from Coon­abarabran were all in­volved on and off the field as ref­eree/touch judge/of­fi­cial over the week­end.
