Bryce taking the bull by its horns

IT'S off to the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Luckily Bryce Magnay, 19, has the brave part sorted - as a bull rider.

He's been selected to captain Australia's bareback riding team at the American National High School Finals in Rock Springs, Wyoming.

And now he's asking the local community to dig deep and donate for his cause.

"To compete in the United States is a dream come true and to captain my country is something I am very proud of," Bryce said.

This Saturday the Coffs Hotel will host an auction from 1pm to 6pm to help Bryce raise the fund he needs to get to the USA next month.

With prizes including West Tigers and Cronulla Sharks signed jerseys and a Bowmount Minnkota electric motor, Bryce is keen to get the auction started.

"All of the prizes are pretty good - and they've got a big signed, framed picture of me on a bull, loving it," he said.

"I hope that goes for a bit."

And so does Bryce's mum, Nardienne Magnay, who has backed her son since the beginning of his career.

"I'm a very proud mum," she said.
