Brothers set top goal
By AARON KELLY ? ALTON Downs cowboy Anthony Everingham is aiming to go one better than his older brother, Larry, this year by being crowned Bullriding Australia champion.
Anthony is fully focused entering tonight's 2005 Toyota Extreme Superbull Series second round at Rockhampton's Great Western Hotel.
Fresh from last weekend's Julia Creek victory, the 25-year-old has set his sights on dominating this year's Australian circuit before he is reunited with Larry, 27, on the Professional Bull Riders (PBR) circuit in 2006.
He plans to join forces with Larry and Australia's all-time great Troy Dunn in the Built Ford Tough Series ? the World Cup of bullriding.
"Larry has finished runner-up the last two years so I want to take it out this year I if could,'' said Anthony, who is sitting in second place behind New South Wales bullrider Al Southern in the national standings.
A horse breaker at sunrise and landscaper by day, Anthony will confront Biralee Bomber and High Five tonight ? two bulls he will ride for the first time.
"They've both been bucking pretty good and I've been going all right so hopefully we can put two-and-two together,'' Anthony said.
