Tate Award goes to the Wolf-knee
Reports have emerged from Cowboys House of a lavish gala function that followed the team's win against the deplorable Warriors on Saturday night.
The exclusive soiree held in the main ballroom of the CowHouse, was to present the annual Tate Award, for the best player afield in the North-Queensland-Auckland match.
The Cowboys organisation have commissioned a commemorative mug for the occasion (above) that has been struck by Royal Redlynch China from a design by Jake Granville.
The presentation ceremony was strictly invitation only, and no cameras were allowed inside the venue. Despite this, the Plain Dealer has been able to obtain exclusive information from a Cowboys insider.
Our source has reported that, following an inspirational speech from three-time Tate winner, Matthew Bowen, the award was presented to back-rower Ethan Lowe by Brent Tate himself.
Lowe reportedly looked as pleased by the outcome as he was by the wonderful try he had scored earlier in the evening.
It has also been reported that the gala evening concluded with the popular Tate Debate, which features Brent Tate debating an invited guest on a topical issue. This year's opponent was cricket Jordan Silk, who debated for the proposition 'That cricket is fake sport.'
The Plain Dealer has obtained an impression of the debate protagonists (below), allegedly drawn by debate moderator, Samantha Armytage.
