COWBOYS representing a number of states and territories are set to converge on Emerald on Saturday, November 28 as the Professional Bull Riders National tour gets set to deliver Round two of the ARM Rural Weekly Live Series.

PBR is renowned for pitting the most accomplished bull riders against the most extreme bucking bulls in individual competitions and Emerald will be no different.

The likes of the unridden reigning PBR Bucking Bull of the Year Gotcha Rockin and 2014 Troy Dunn Champion Bucking Bull, The Hump are confirmed to be in the Championship Round of the competition.

Organisers are excited about returning to Emerald, especially since the town is central to where many of the great bulls and riders come from and is the heartland for PBR fans.

This event is right in the middle of the season.

Riders are jostling for ranking positions and the young rising stars of the sport are eager to make a name for themselves.

Picking a winner in this competition would be no different than trying to pick the winner of the 2016 NRL Grand Final before the season even starts.

Each and every one of these riders entered in this competition has the ability to take out the event win.

One thing fans can be assured of come November 28 is a well-run production along with great bull riding match ups that will keep them glued to their seats from the first bull of the night right through to the last.

Tickets are on sale now and available at the front counter of CQ News or online www.rural
