Mount Isa’s Cameron McKerrow has been chosen in the Australian Stockman Rugby Union squad with selectors saying his character, ability, strength and experience have positioned him for an opportunity to play the Western Force in Perth.
The Australian Stockman Rugby Union side coached by former Wallabies Nic Henderson and James Holbeck will assemble for a week-long camp at Perth next weekend. They will play the Western Force U19’s side on Tuesday August 21 and the Western Force on Saturday August 25.
The 2018 Stockman Rugby squad is comprised of off-contract professionals, Shute Shield and Premier rugby players and players in club competitions.
Cameron’s supporters have set up a Go Fund Me page to raise the $2000 needed for him to get to Perth.
“I am calling on the community to get behind him from our local Rugby clubs, Rotary Clubs, businesses, local friends and family to support Cam,” mum Dee said.
