Stop Stuffing Around Bureaucrats and Provide Real Drought Funding

Author: Kate

Saturday’s National Rugby Championship clash at Scully Park capped off what has been a breakout season for Narrabri’s Will McDonnell.

The former Blue Boars junior was at the start of the season just hoping to cement a first grade spot with Sydney University after being hampered by injury last season.

He well and truly surpassed that, the 22-year-old’s list of achievements over the season including playing for the Waratahs on their tour of Japan, being named the Rookie of the Year for the Shute Shield competition and Sydney Uni’s Rookie of the Year, and earning a call-up to the NSW Country Eagles squad.

Farm family shows the Royals how the drought has hurt I Gallery

Author: Kate

It’s not every day a Duke and a Duchess walk through the front gate on the property Mountain View Farm at Wongarbon near Dubbo – nor eight police with sniffer dogs, scores of press members and a retinue of VIPs and officials.

But that’s what happened yesterday when the Woodley family hosted Prince Harry and his new wife, US-raised Meghan Markle as the Royals took time out from their Dubbo visit to learn how hard the drought has been.

Laura Woodley, 23, even had time for a personal chat with Meghan, explaining what she does and how she is proud to be the fifth generation of Woodleys on the farm, a White Suffolk sheep stud.
