Billy’s league century

On Thursday, June 9, Billy laced up the boots for his under-12s team for the milestone event and ran out with his mates as he does every weekend of the season.

It seems he is destined to follow in the footsteps of father and local league legend Ben Sprague, who coaches Billy’s team and had a stellar playing and coaching career himself.

The team is made up of a core group of school friends who have been playing together since under-6s. The emphasis on them is to have fun, according to Sprague senior.

“It’s good to see him going well and to play 100 games is good for anyone,” he said.

“We have another two players who will do the same later this year. I can’t give him too much of a wrap, he’s my son, but he’s developing well as a footballer.”

Normally a halfback, Billy has spent time in different positions on the field as most of the players do.

He is also a handy touch footballer and picks up skills and traits from watching his favourite National Rugby League team, the Brisbane Broncos.

“I love rugby league a lot. My dad played it and I like doing the same thing that he did,” Billy said.

“I go to school with a lot of my team mates so it is a lot of fun when we are playing games.

“Rugby league is all about having fun. I won’t stop playing anytime soon.”
