With another week of the UTB tour down our Aussies didn't have much luck across the board, but will be looking for a change of fortune with the PBR World Finals now less than 8 weeks away.

Unleash The Beast Tour: Little Rock, AR

Event number 16 of this season's Unleash the Beast tour stopped into the city of roses at Simmons Bank Arena for the PBR Little Rock Classic, with Brady Fielder and Callum Miller suiting up across the weekend's action from Arkansas. 

Round 1 saw Miller matched up against Rock N' Roll from McClellan Creek / Lidgard, a bovine with only one previous PBR out to his name. The ride unfortunately went the way of the bovine, coming out strong to the left and the Aussie was unable to handle the low spinner away from his hand, getting called for a touch at the 4.44 second mark. 

After the section break it was his fellow Queenslander Fielder who would be the next contestant to call for his bull in which was Fire Zone (Martinez Bucking Bulls), recording its first ever PBR out on the big stage during Round 1 action.

Coming out of the chutes in a hurry and turning back to the left away from the mitt of Brady, it was the bovine who got the better of the battle with the cowboy losing grasp of his bull-rope at the 2.06 second marker.  

As Saturday night dawned in Arkansas, it was Fielder's turn to lead off the Australian contingent on the daysheet and was looking to try and break his duck for the weekend, up against Hunter from the Dozier Cattle Co / Martinez Bucking Bulls pen. 

Fielder was called for a slap at 2.77 with Hunter just having too much power forcing Brady to miss the front end and fall to the outside of the spin, therefore ending his weekend with a pair of no scores. 

His fellow countryman would experience the same fate later on in Round 2, with Cold Creek (Rocking Rafter P Ranches / Young Cattle Co) getting Miller to the end of his rope and ejecting the Cowboy in 4 and 39 on the clock, to extend his UTB buckoff streak to 13. 

The UTB tour now heads to Albuquerque, NM for the TY Murray Invitational this weekend and Australian's can follow all the action HERE with the PBR's International Livestream.
