Senator IAN MACDONALD (Queensland) (15:38): Mr President, before I ask that the notice of motion be taken as formal, can I indicate that my fellow North Queensland senator, Senator Jan McLucas, a loyal and unrefined Cowboys supporter, as I am, also wants to be part of the motion, and I am very happy that Senator McLucas join me in this motion. I ask that the general business notice of motion No. 884 be taken as formal.

Senator McLucas: Go Cowboys!

The PRESIDENT: Is there any objection to this motion being taken as formal? That was an interjection, Senator McLucas. There being no objection, I call Senator Macdonald.

Senator IAN MACDONALD: I, and also on behalf of Senator McLucas, move:

That the Senate:

(a) notes that the North Queensland Cowboys Rugby League Team won its first ever National Rugby League Grand Final;

(b) congratulates Cowboys co-captain Johnathon Thurston on:

(i) his leadership,

(ii) his award of a record fourth Dally M Player of the Year Medal, and

(iii) winning the Clive Churchill Player of the Grand Final Medal and the Provan Summons Fans Choice Medal as the Best Player of the Year; and

(c) urges the Government to continue to support excellence in sport and the identification of role models.

Question agreed to.
