North Queensland Cowboys CEO Greg Tonner, and Production Manager Tim Nuhent accompanied the trophy to Black Star Central. Named after the legendary Norm Provan and Arthur Summons, it bears their sculpture based on the historic image of the late Fairfax photographer John O’Gready and has been a feature of every Premiership trophy since 1982.
The Trophy is visiting many Northern Communities, so stay tuned to Black Star for details of when it will be in your area. It’s just about to head to Lockhart River, Coen and Aurukun. Greg Tonner says ” It is North Queensland’s Trophy and it’s important that it visits to the most remote parts of North Queensland first”.
He is encouraging people to become members of the Cowboys NRL Club so they and the team can benefit from a large and enthusiastic membership base. “We want the Cowboys to be number one both on the field and off the field in terms of membership”, he says.
Skytrans Airlines, part owned by Cowboys Captain Johnathan Thurston, is flying the Trophy and its entourage to many remote communities in coming weeks. Keep listening to Black Star Radio for details as they become available and get your chance to see this coveted treasure up close and personal.
