Danny Buderus and a kid called “Woody” inspire Blues on Day One of Interstates

New South Wales has been inspired by the words of State of Origin rugby league captain Danny Buderus and the performances of teenage swim star Brad Woodward on day one of the Surf Life Saving Australia National Interstate Championships in Sydney today.

Buderus addressed the teams on the eve of the championships and his stirring words of advice certainly fired up the Blues for the Pool Rescue events at Ryde Aquatic Centre.

NSW in front by one point at National Interstate Championships

Team NSW is a nail-biting one point in front of QLD after day one of Surf Life Saving Australia’s National Interstate Championships at Ryde Aquatic Centre.
