We all held our breath when he first touched the ball, see how it all unfolded here.

He wasn't the only league talent showing his stuff for Gympie - a group of Gympie teens combined with some Maryborough lads to play some serious league in Bundaberg this week.

It might be a quiet weekend with our local sides playing away this weekend but it will give us a chance to prepare ourselves for Wednesday night's State of Origin decider.

The boys need a solid performance to beat the Blues on their turf but this is the style that suits us - the underdog.

QUEENSLANDER!

Cheers everyone.
