The Warwick and District JRL are pleased to announce North Queensland Cowboys backrower Ethan Lowe has signed on to be the League's ambassador for the 2018 season.
Born in Goondiwindi, Lowe played his first junior rugby league for the Boars before moving to Toowoomba for high school, signing on for the Valleys Roosters.
WDJRL Chairman Dave Landers was grateful to Lowe for agreeing to be the ambassador for the region and hoped that his support and profile will help show other young players in the area what can be achieved with a lot of hard work and dedication.
"It's great that Ethan has come on board with the WDJRL this season," Landers said.
"Ethan is a fine example for our junior players in Goondiwindi and the Warwick and District region and continues a wonderful tradition of junior players who have made it to the elite level in our game."
Other high-profile rugby league players from the area include: Mick Hancock (Stanthorpe), Billy Moore (Tenterfield), Shane Webcke (Wattles) and Stephanie Hancock (Easts).
Lowe was excited to support grassroots rugby league in his hometown and to give back to the community and region that helped shape him into the player he is today.
"I grew up and played my junior rugby league years in Goondiwindi, so to be given the opportunity to be an ambassador for the sport in my hometown and region is something I'm really looking forward to," he said
The Warwick and District JRL would like to wish Lowe all the best for the rest of the season with the North Queensland Cowboys and they look forward to him visiting the region when he has a break from his playing commitments.
