The Provan-Summons Trophy will head to the heart of Queensland this week for the next phase of its landmark Premiership tour of Cowboys’ country.
After notching up more than 20,000km across dozens of towns and cities since the North Queensland Toyota Cowboys’ maiden NRL premiership in early October, the trophy tour will move to the Central Highlands, starting with a visit to the coal mining town of Glenden on Wednesday 16 December.
From there, it will move south to Moranbah, as part of a five-day tour of the region – towns on the visit include Dysart, Middlemount, Tieri, Emerald, Bluff, Blackwater, Springsure, Capella and Clermont.
Accompanying the trophy to the Centrals Highlands will be retired Cowboys forward Glenn Hall and valued long-time member Cec Ivers.
“We can’t wait to get out into those Coalfields towns and share the trophy with the members and supporters who were with the Cowboys every step of the way to the premiership,” Hall, 2015 Cowboys Club Person of the Year, said.
“It’s been a fantastic thing that we’ve been able to take the trophy to so many towns and communities in the Cowboys’ footprint.”
