FARRER STUDENT SIGNS NRL CONTRACT

Farrer High School’s Marcus Bower has his sights set on a future in the NRL, after signing with Wests Tigers.

The Glenn Innes five-eighth will join the Balmain under 18’s squad for the 2009 season, before playing with the under 20’s team.

Bower was instrumental in the schoolboy team’s win against Sarah Redfern High in the University Shield two months ago.
