IT WAS a long trip, but when Billy Slater arrived in Gladstone today he was glad to feel warmth on his legs, not accustomed to Gladstone's hot weather compared to Melbourne's cold.

When asked what Billy was looking forward to the most during his visit here, he said :"the sun, actually".
 



"I'm from Melbourne," he laughed.

"So it's beautiful."
