Desperate Wattles target Brothers

AFTER a seven-round dry spell, Wattles are looking to claim their first 2012 season premiership points when they run on against Brothers at Toowoomba's Glenholme Park tomorrow.

The Warriors line-up is virtually unchanged from the side which was beaten 66-6 by Goondiwindi last weekend, with some minor positional jockeying.

Former state U19 and Queensland Rangers representative Russell McMillan moves from the backline to fullback.

The veteran has been at home in that position for most of his playing career and will bring experience and stability to the last line.

Wattles dual Player of the Year Luke Baker will add to the attacking options, lining up in the centres, recently returning from injury.

Wattles are more than capable of scoring points against any opponent - halves Jordan Henry and the experienced Burwood Robinson work well with outside backs.

Another bonus is the talent of hooker Josh McIntosh with his dummy-half play.

Defence has been the Warriors main problem. The side has made some encouraging starts but have not maintained momentum.

Lock Liam Ross set the example last weekend as Wattles' outstanding defensive player.

President Barry Glass has no doubt his A-graders can cause an upset against the highly-rated Brothers line up but commitment throughout is vital.

 

Wattles side: 1 Russell McMillan, 2 Anthony McIntosh, 3 Luke Baker, 4 Justin Van Der Poel, 5 Michael Brackin, 6 Burwood Robinson, 7 Jordan Henry, 8 Carl Gale, 9 Josh McIntosh, 10 Jason Nightingale, 11 Glen McMillan (c), 12 Aaron Scheid, 13 Liam Ross.
