“I am proud to be named on the Willinga Park Team for the AJTL 2021, to represent Terry Snow and his team is a real privilege and we are so appreciative of Terry’s support to our sport and the industry. I was first named on the team in 2020 but unfortunately, with Covid the season didn’t go ahead. I’m sure we will do Terry Snow and his entire team very proud and we cannot wait to get underway on home ground at Caboolture next weekend and then be down at the World Class facility Willinga Park for round 3!”
