Senator Peter Georgiou literally took the bull by the horns over the weekend when he saddled up and jumped on “Chuck Norris” the bull at Wagin for the annual rodeo.

The Senator spent two days in the region with One Nation WA leader Colin Tincknell talking to farmers about the season ahead and the impact of a possible ban on live sheep exports.

With only two hours training on a simulated bull under his belt, the Senator was keen to get a real taste of rodeo action and brilliantly lasted the minimum eight seconds when he jumped on “Chuck”.

While he may have been disqualified on a technicality it didn’t stop the roaring crowd cheer on the Senator as  he bravely completed his novice bull ride.

Last time we checked, we can’t recall too many politicians who’ve jumped on a bull just for kicks!
