Hollybowls us overBy Josh Spasaro and Siân Baloghinside queensland rail | 16Thomson has not been the only one to stand up and take notice.Holly travelled to Sri Lanka to train with the Australian women’steam leading up to their World Twenty20 campaign. This was aneye opening trip for her, not only experiencing the high level oftraining that comes with being a part of the national team, butalso on a personal level, experiencing a vastly different countryand culture.Last summer the South Burnett’s best batsmen struggled to scoreoff her and she has become the talk of the region that is famousfor producing champion test batsman Matthew Hayden.At just 16 years of age, Holly Ferling, is taking the cricketingworld by storm. She is a fast bowler with immense talent who hasalready toured New Zealand with the Australian 2nd X1 and istipped to soon break the record for the fastest Australian femalebowler ever.Holly, from Kingaroy, first came to the attention of the QueenslandRail Bulls Masters (QRBMs) on their inaugural tour to the SouthBurnett in 2010. Earlier this year she was chosen to play with theQRBMs in an exhibition match when they again toured the SouthBurnett region. Holly was so impressive that legendary Australianfast bowler Jeff Thomson walked down from the stands to watchher bowl close up.“To have a legend of the game come up and say he wasimpressed with my bowling was just unreal,” Holly said. “He gaveme tips on my bowling action and how to get more pace. It wasa great opportunity to meet him and be able to play alongsidepeople like Matt Hayden.”Holly recently debuted for the Queensland Fire and was excited tohave her first match reach a Super Over.“It was very nerve wracking but amazing. I got to bowl a coupleof overs during the match and I loved every minute. My aim is tokeep being selected for the Queensland Fire team and hopefullywe’ll reach the finals in January/February.”If her cricketing achievements were not enough, Holly is also closeto making the Queensland under-18 netball team, as well as beingtipped to gain an OP 1 or 2 when she graduates high school nextyear. She hopes to study Physiotherapy or Teaching (physicaleducation) at university next year.The busy teenager trains before and after school, and sometimesshe squeezes in a session during her lunch break. Weekends oftenconsist of travelling to Brisbane for matches – and being a learnerdriver, this gives her a good chance to clock some hours for herdriving log book.


inside queensland rail | 17When asked who she aspires to be like,Holly replies, “Ellyse Perry – she’s so talentedacross two sports (soccer and cricket). She’sa fast bowler, like me. I was at the trainingcamp in Sri Lanka with her and could seejust how incredibly fit she was.”In the long term, Holly has her sights seton being a part of the Australian Women’steam, the Southern Stars. At the rate she’sgoing, that dream may come sooner thanshe thinks.The Queensland Rail Bulls Masters wereformed in 2010 as a non-profit organisationby former cricketing greats Jimmy Maher,Ian Healy, Alan Border and MichaelKasprowicz. Their key aim is to leveragethe public profiles of Queensland sportinglegends to raise funds for charity and localsporting associations, promote healthy livingthrough participation in sport and providepositive role modelling for young people.Over the past 18 months they raised nearly$300,000 for local charities and sportinggroups across Queensland.QRBMs Managing Director Jimmy Mahersays Holly Ferling is a great example of howthey have also been able to support andencourage individual young sporting starscoming up through the ranks in regionalareas. “Who knows, in coming years wemay have the privilege of Holly opening thebowling for the QRBMs on one of our toursto regional Queensland” says Maher.Holy Ferling and Andy BichelCatch the next Queensland Rail BullsMasters match in Charters TowersSunday 27 January 2013Match commences at 3pmQueensland Rail Bulls Masters vs.Charters Towers Invitational XIGoldfield Sporting ComplexCharters TowersContact Queensland Rail Travel on1800 627 655 to plan your trip toCharters Towers.

In 2011/2012 Queensland Rail raised over$9,000 dollars for the TPCHF.Daniel TuivaitiHe looks like a healthy 23 year old, butDaniel Tuivaiti was born with a rare form ofcongenital heart disease.His mum, Karen, thought her new baby washaving trouble breathing. She was amazedthat cardiologist Dr Dorothy Radford wasable to identify the problem as soon as shelistened to baby Daniel’s chest.“He had cardiac failure at five months old,”Karen said.“He spent five weeks in hospital and wenearly lost him.”So far Daniel’s had four surgeries to repairhis heart.“Because of the medication I bruise easilyand, as a kid, the biggest pain was notplaying contact sports like footy,” Danielsaid.“I was also self conscious about my scarbut my brothers have always been goodkeeping my confidence up and told me Ishould be proud of it.”When he was in his early teens, Daniel hada TIA, a mini stroke, the first of four so far.Since then he has taken aspirin to makehis blood less sticky and thinner.“The first and last were the worst,” he said.“I got a strange feeling over my body, myarm would go numb or I might be reallydizzy and then I just couldn’t speak English.“It’s really scary.”Although he self-monitors his blood levels,steers clear of contact sports and only hasthe occasional drink with mates, Karen stillworries about her youngest son.“He’s very sensible, but I worry that he’llhave another TIA and it will do damage,”Karen said.Daniel isn’t letting any fears stop himthough.Apart from occasional migraines and histwice yearly check ups, his health is undercontrol, he’s fit and plays a bit of touchfooty.He finished his plumbing apprenticeshiptwo years ago and is now looking to geta job at a mine or on a rig and do someoverseas travel.Casandra Weiske (Below ) and Daniel Tuivaiti (Above)pictured with some feline friends to promote the PCHF‘9 Lives Appeal’ that shares stories of people whohave been given an extra chance at life, thanks to theamazing team at the hospital
