Iles set for Qld Country honours

WARWICK Redbacks captain Brendan Iles has stepped up another cog during the past month.

While not only starring at his own club, he managed to be noticed at representative level.

The pre-season Cardinal Cup was visited by AFL Queensland talent scouts and the performance of Iles, who was named player of the carnival, was a big step in the right direction.

When Iles led the AFL Darling Downs representative team to victory against Northern Rivers, his selection in the Queensland Country Stockmen team was sealed with a best on ground game.

The scouts were on hand again and Iles was called up to the training squad of 36 players.

The squad, which will be narrowed to 24 during the next couple of weeks, will travel to Cairns to play Queensland City.

The top 22 players will be named for the all Queensland team.

With three consecutive Holman Medals for Darling Downs fairest and best, it is difficult to see him missing out on the Country Stockmen.

His talent cannot be denied, his intensity at the ball is unquestionable and his self-belief and desire to play at the elite level is in place.
