Rodeo’s good sports

Lynne Mowbray

This year the Lawrence Rodeo ‘King of the River – steer riding challenge’ took on a new format.

In the past, the challenge has been between upper and lower river rugby league players; this year the challenge was between local rugby and cricket players.

Last year’s winner, Grafton Ghost’s Ben McLennan stirred the pot by entering a ring in, his brother in law Luke Campbell, under the guise of the Ghost’s, Mitch Wicks.

The fun event which is always a crowd pleaser saw Campbell’s ride, seal the win for the rugby players.
