Wilson shows you just can?t keep a true champion down



ST GEORGE cowboy Tim Wilson is living proof that bullriders have no fear.

Making his return to the ring this year from serious injury, Wilson was bucked off for just the second time in round two of the Superbull Series at Rockhampton's Great Western Hotel on Saturday night.

Wilson, a former two-time Bullriding Australia champion, busted an artery in his arm when competing on the United States circuit last year.

After a long stint on the sidelines, Wilson was then stomped on by a bull in his comeback event at the Troy Dunn International.

However, a courageous Wilson is back in business and is the No.1 bullrider in 2006.

On Saturday night, Wilson finished a brave fourth, with Rockhampton's Ben Seeds crowned champion.

Seeds, who boasts an incredible winning strike-rate in the Superbull Series, was the only competitor to go the distance, scoring 851/2 points in both rounds.

Seeds has now won the most rounds in the Superbull Series.

Maryborough's Ben Kehliher was runner-up and opening round champion, Brisbane's Saras Ramsey, placed third.
