A rugby league GOAT and nine Australian international cricketers are already locked-in for the Bulls Masters Bundaberg Tour in February.
Bulls Masters managing director Jimmy Maher was in the region recently to announce that Australian Cricket legend Chris Lynn and future rugby league immortal Cameron Smith would headline the Bulls Masters Tour for 2023.
Now, more names are joining the line-up for the for Bulls Masters Bundaberg Tour on 23-25 February.
With the rivalry between the Bulls Masters and the Bundaberg Invitational XI reaching new heights in recent years, the Bulls Masters have needed to entice a stronger side to avoid falling behind in the head-to-head ledger for the first time.
The series is currently tied at two-all.
“There’s a lot of quality cricketers in Bundaberg, they’ve proved that to us so we can’t take them lightly,” Jimmy said.
“We’ll be coming with our most experienced side ever and we think we’ll be able to put on a show for the local cricket fans.”
The game will be played on Saturday at 6.30 pm, 25 February at Salter Oval.
There will be extra incentives for the crowd to watch the ball this year.
Any member of the public at the game who catches a six hit by either side will receive $100.
No gloves and the ball must be caught with the hands.
The Sportsman’s Dinner at the Bundaberg Multiplex, Friday 24 February, will be a highlight of the tour with internationally renowned comedian Phil Cass confirmed as the comic relief.
Also hitting the stage to entertain will be Cameron Smith and some extra special guests who’ll be named at a later date.
The free kids super clinic will run again before the game starting at 4.30 pm with the Bulls Masters players out helping run the clinics.
All kids (all ages) are welcome and encouraged to attend.
There will also be a curtain-raiser game beginning at 1 pm.
Joining Lynn and Smith will be another eight former international cricketers and four former Bulls players.
