Group XI continues to soar above the rest
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.
