Mr GREG PIPER (Lake Macquarie)—It's always pleasing to see Lake Macquarie's home-grown junior sporting talent turning their dreams into reality, so I'd like to acknowledge rising rugby league star Max Bradbury who is doing just that. Max, a former Wangi Warrior, was recently selected to represent NSW in the Under 19s Blues State of Origin side and was a starting prop. I note the team had a convincing win over the Queenslanders with an impressive final score of 32 - 4. The match was played at Leichhardt Oval and screened on free to air TV, with many locals watching on from the Wangi Wangi Workers Club where it was played on the big screen. Max certainly is a rising rugby league talent, coming up through the Newcastle Knights' pathways program, he is a regular starter for the Knights' Jersey Flegg side this season. Not only was Max a Wangi Warrior but he was also a Westlakes Athletics representative and was the club's most recent State gold medallist, winning the under-14 200-metre hurdles for boys. I congratulate Max on his sporting success and I look forward to seeing what he achieves in the future.
