Dean Roberts

MULTI-SKILLED Dean Roberts not only drives a Ford Louisville 9000 but also operates a Ditch Witch JT2700.

"I am doing some boring on this footpath and it is a pretty good job," he said.

Workers from the company have been in Townsville since last October and expect to be there for two more years.

The 46-year-old Dean is a Melbourne Storm supporter in the NRL and was happy that they had beaten the Sydney Bulldogs 22-18 the previous night.

"I also follow Carlton in the AFL and hope they have a good season," he said.
