Deguara strong chance at hometown rodeo at Nebo

 

 

NEBO timed event star Jarrod Deguara will be one of the cowboys to watch at the annual Mackay Toyota Nebo Rodeo on Saturday. (May 13)

Deguara has regularly qualified for the Australian Professional Rodeo Association National Finals in Steer Wrestling and also competes in Team Roping.

He will compete with two different partners in Team Roping at Nebo.

The rodeo will be held in the Nebo Undercover Arena with the junior rodeo starting at 10am Saturday and the open rodeo from 6pm Saturday.

Deguara will face some of his toughest opposition in the Steer Wrestling from Alton Downs rider Shane Iker, the current APRA All Around Champion.

Current standings leader Lachlan O’Neill will make the trip from Caboolture to Nebo this weekend and compete in a field of 39 in Steer Wrestling.

The rodeo has attracted more than 300 nominations and organisers can lay claims to having one of the biggest rodeos in Queensland outside of Mt Isa, Warwick and Cloncurry.

The future for Bull Riding in the APRA looks bright with 27 nominations for the Open Bull ride and 35 for second division at Nebo.

Two of the favourites for the Open Bull Ride will be Ben Thorp who is travelling from Young in New South Wales and Proserpine star Roy Dunn.

Thorp is fourth in current APRA standings and Dunn fifth and both have won some of the biggest rodeos in the nation.

In the Saddle Bronc, one of the favourites is Wandoan rider Cameron Webster but he will have to keep an eye on Wantabadgery (NSW) cowboy Rhys Angland who has won plenty of titles in the APRA.

The rough stock for the Saddle bronc, Bull Ride and Bareback Bronc ride are being provided by Darren Brandenburg and Gill Brothers while the timed event stock are being contracted by Emerald couple Shane and Leanne Kenny, of Destiny Downs Cattle Company.
