Community Recognition Statement - Nate Browning
Community Recognition Statement delivered in the Fifty-Seventh Parliament of New South Wales by the Member for Barwon Roy Butler on 16 October 2019.
At just 12 years old, Narrabri West Public School student Nate Browning is kicking goals in Rugby League. Nate recently returned from the School Sports Australia Rugby League Championships where he competed as a member of the NSW 12 years Rugby League team, bringing home a bronze medal after his team placed third at the event. Nate was named in the 34-man NSW Development Squad and attended an intensive training camp at the Sydney Academy of Sport in Narrabeen during the July school holidays. At the conclusion of the camp, Nate was named at front row, number 10, for NSW – a massive achievement for a kid from the bush. Nate is not only a talented Rugby League player, but a great role model to the younger players in his local club. His attitude and sportsmanship are a credit to his parents Luke and Christy.
