Federal Member for Kennedy Bob Katter has taken some time to pen a letter to some of our Far North recruits.
Jake Clifford hasn't been picked for the Cowboys this weekend, but will spend some time running out onto the field in the NRL for the NQ team.
While Thomas Flegler debuted for the Broncos last night, not getting too much time on the field, but impressing where he could.
Katter had this to say to the two men:
"Big congratulations to the two new youngsters who are now in the NRL.
Jake Clifford will be running on for the Cowboys this year, Thomas Flegler will be running on for the Broncos.
We are so proud of our Tully boys, one of the great homes of Rugby League.
A little western league the year before last had five playing in the NRL and two playing for Australia and we are immensely proud of them.
We’ve still got Bolton. Gavin Cooper is married to one of our Innisfail daughters. Innisfail; the home of legends like Slater and Boustead.
Great to see more of our boys coming through from the Far North. I’ll be watching with great pride this year."
