THREE players from England will boost the Warwick Cowboys' ranks for the 2013 Toowoomba Rugby League season.

At a players' afternoon last weekend, coaches Ken Coles (A-grade), Noel Loudon (reserve-grade) and David O'Leary (under-18) chatted with the players about the 10-club 2013 TRL season.

New president Peter Locke said English-born player Garry Ellery would again be in Cowboys' colours this season after starring in his first two seasons with the club.

"We have a second rower and second rower/five-eighth coming out from Wigan in England as well," he said. "Garry is going home for Christmas but will return for the 2013 season."

At the recent club annual general meeting, the position of secretary was not filled but Locke said a volunteer offered to fill the position and would be appointed at a club meeting next week.

Coles said the Cowboys' player stocks were a lot better now than when he first coached the side in 2005-2006.

"Scott Ellis will play after reaching FOGS Cup level in Brisbane. Scott, Garth Miller and Ben Brownlie were three of the players in my team in 2006," Coles said.

U18 coach David O'Leary said he had discussed with Coles the possibility of a number of U18 players being blooded in A-grade.

"Player of the year Joel Bradfield is one player capable of a lot of A-grade in 2013," O'Leary said.

He said the three coaches would be working closely together.

"The aim is for all three teams to reach the finals."

The Cowboys have a golf day tomorrow and the Wall of Legends opening at 2pm on November 17.
