Eisteddfod photos and results for Tuesday 30 April

FINLAY Manning is proof one can be both sporty and 'artsy', having placed first in light verse recitation (Girls/Boys 11 yrs) at Rockhampton eisteddfod and trying out in a few weeks for the CQ rep team in touch football.

The St Peters student, who chose The Car Trip by Michael Rosen for his piece, said he's grateful to his parents for driving him between speech and drama and touch football, as well as rugby union, league, tennis and swimming.

"We go to Hervey Bay and lots of different places," he said.

Finlay, who studies with Alex Peacock, said that when he becomes a sports star, he'll be able to give great interviews because he studied speech and drama.
