Rupert and JT at the Royal Reception for William and Kate - April 2014

 

Rupert McCall penned a Cowboys-themed poem and recited it at the club’s corporate launch this year. It was brilliant stuff … humorous, emotion-charged and full of colour and vibrancy which perfectly captured the Cowboys’ spirit. His poetry and delivery are perfectly suited to the Cowboys’ culture - laid-back but charged with emotion; heartfelt and personal yet reaching out across the varied communities that make up our treasured fan base; iconic and rooted in history but containing something for the here and now. Rupert is a fantastic poet and orator as well as being a champion bloke. For myself personally and on behalf of the North Queensland Cowboys, I’d eagerly recommend him for any related MC or hosting gig. His presence would be a brilliant addition to any function and I can say from experience just what a positive effect his words had on me and the boys as we embarked on the challenge of another National Rugby League season. Recent history has since shown that the year to date has been a great success in terms of on-field results as we close out the regular season and roll on towards the finals series.
