- Cairns Regional Council
Described by Queensland State of Origin coach Mal Meninga as "built for Origin", Nate Myles has been stalwart for the Queensland team for the past seven series.
He enjoyed a stellar series in 2012, being named best-on-ground in Game One in Melbourne.
And following his 20th game Queensland in the 2012 Decider at Lang Park (topping the hit-up count with 18 for 132 metres and making 29 tackles), he was named player-of-the-series winning the Wally Lewis Medal.
I recognise that Nate had a rough patch a few years ago but has he has since changed clubs to be a leader at the Gold Coast Titans where he's let his football do the talking and done us all proud. He has matured enormously as a person and a player and is a real role model for rugby league players and young people in general in Gordonvale.
Innisfail has a sign honouring its State of Origin heroes Billy Slater and Ty Williams and it's about time we get one for Gordonvale too.
We, the undersigned, request that Cairns Regional Council put in place a roadside sign at the entry points of Gordonvale recognising Gordonvale as the home town of State of Origin player Nate Myles, similar to those at Innisfail for Billy Slater and Ty Williams.
The Entry Sign at Gordonvale 'Hometown of Nate Myles' petition to Cairns Regional Council was written by Curtis Pitt MP and is in the category Football at GoPetition.
