Spirit cheerleader Brittany is always right behind the North Queensland Toyota Cowboys and now she needs your vote this week as she vies to make it through to the final eight of the Big League Cheerleader of the Year competition.

>>> Brittany's cheerleader profile

Brittany qualified as the Cowboys’ representative in the final 16 earlier this year and is up against the Canberra Raiders finalist in this week’s showdown.

The duo star in the round 21 magazine, available at newsagents from today and at 1300SMILES Stadium on Saturday night, and you can help to decide who moves on to the final stage of voting.

Twenty-year-old Brittany, whose home town is Townsville, is a familiar face to Cowboys members and fans who come along to home games.

She has been a cheerleader for 10 seasons, including eight with the junior squads before stepping up to the Spirit team.

Brittany is currently in her fourth year of a bachelor of early childhood education and says Josh Hannay is her all-time favourite Cowboy.
