No bull, this could get ugly

SHOW time showdowns don't get much bigger than this.

Shiralee owner and president of the Grafton Show Society Allan Morgan has offered his 800kg bull Showdown for a $10,000 challenge.

Facing the ride of his life is Clarence Valley Mayor Richie Williamson, who could win the money if he stays on bull Hotshot for eight seconds.

Speaking yesterday, Cr Williamson couldn't give a firm yes or no on whether he'd take to the bull's back.

"A number of charities could benefit from the winnings and I'm considering all the options," Cr Williamson said.

"I better dust off the RM Williams boots and the Akubra hat and just see if we can get that $10,000 carrot."

DEX PREDICTION:

While we have faith in our Mayor, that bull looks too mean.
