Launceston's Josie through to nationals

LAUNCESTON woman Josie Murray and Burnie's LaShai Howard have taken out a joint first place at Miss Universe Australia in Hobart today.

The two winners ``shone'', she said.

``They answered questions well, they had a healthy image - the other states better watch out,'' Ms Miller said.

The national competition will be held in Melbourne on June 6.
