RIDERS from Lockington in the south to Townsville in the north will combine in team roping at the Warwick Rodeo Australian Championships on October 22-25 at the Warwick Showgrounds.

Campbell Hodson from Townsville is the header in a combination with Terry Evison, the heeler, from Lockington in Victoria.

Hodson is seeking his first open title win in the Australian Professional Rodeo Association while Evison has previously won in combination with Nilma North cowboy Aaron Bookluck.

In the championships, Hodson and Evison won’t get it all their own way as standings leaders Clancy Middleton and Brody Moss will take some beating.

Middleton is from Hughenden in North Queensland and Moss calls Emerald in Central Queensland home.

One of the teams to beat will be two Kenny’s from Queensland who are not related, Shane from Emerald and Brendan from Clermont.

APRA executive chairman Lee Kimber hails from Lockington in Victoria and will combine with Bacchus Marsh cowboy Glen Perkins in team roping at Warwick.

The pair won at Marrabel in South Australia earlier this month.

Perkins also won the rope and tie at Marrabel and will contest the Australian championships in his two events.

Kimber is one of the favourites from Victoria to win a title. He finished the 2015 season with the most prize money in steer wrestling and proved with a win at Marrabel in South Australia he has lost none of his form.

The other Victorian with a standings lead going into Warwick is Bunyip cowgirl Shianne O’Donoghue-Kent who leads the barrel racing standings.

The Warwick Rodeo Australian Championships will feature rounds on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights at the Warwick Showgrounds and then a daytime round on the Sunday between the top 15 in each APRA event. There will also be second-division and junior events.
