Broken bone fails to break spirit
JOSH Ayre put his body on the line to make the under-12 Wide Bay team to play in the State Championship.
A broken wrist as a result of a big tackle saw Josh, 12, skip the final selection rounds.
"I ended breaking my wrist against Bundaberg," he said.
"So I was just put straight in the team."
It was the first time he'd broken a bone but he said the pain was worth it.
The championship will be played on the Gold Coast next month.
