THE Warwick Credit Union Redbacks could very well be facing the last roll of the dice for the 2012 season.

A must-win game against USQ at Roddie's Oval tomorrow will see the Reddies slip into outright fourth place, where a loss will see them struggling in sixth place with a tough road ahead.

USQ will only need a win to cement themselves in the four.

The return of Clinton McErvale and Jamie Cochrane will help the Reddies, but the loss of Mark Mills, Andrew Fidge, Cam Peterson and Ray Lawer from last week's line-up will hurt.

Liam Keating and Aaron Lawlor are still on the injured list. The biggest news for this weekend's inclusions are the return of key defender come ruckman Steve Martin and the possible return of speedy wingman Coen Slatter.

The hopeful inclusions of the Politch brothers and the addition to the squad of utility Clinton Spencer are also good news for the Reddies, who have struggled for numbers all season.

Spencer has moved to Warwick and is an ex-University player and the holder of dual Carl Price Medals (AFL DD U18s best and fairest).

The Reddies juniors will take the field in all age groups tomorrow at 8.40am.

The U14s side is in the same boat as the seniors, a win tomorrow against USQ will secure a spot in the four and they will almost certainly see finals action.

So head along and spur on all grades. They enjoy playing and you will enjoy being a Reddies supporter.

The family fun day will be on again on Sunday from 10am until at least 2pm at Roddie's Oval.

There are all kinds of fun and games and an opportunity to become a part of a great club.
