SECOND rower Brendan McNicol was judged players' player in the Warwick Cowboys 42-26 A-grade loss to Goondiwindi at Father Ranger Oval on Saturday night.

Goondiwindi led 18-16 at half-time before the Boars threw the ball around in the second half.

Cowboys secretary Garry Hanson Snr said the scoreline didn't reflect the closenesss of the game.

"We simply didn't put them on their backsides enough," Hanson said.

Winger Jimmy Olsen scored two tries in a game for the second time this season.

Centre Jarred Bradfield won the players' player award in reserve-grade just ahead of forward Pat Cameron in a Warwick 36-8 loss.

Nick Baker impressed at five-eighth.

Goondiwindi scored on the hooter to level the scores in the under-18 game.

It was one flag up and one down from the touch judges for the conversion but the referee said no for a 26-all draw.

After starring in a Warwick High victory on Wednesday, forward Joel Bradfield scored two tries in a strong performance for the Cowboys.

Peter Crummy had one of his best games for the club on the wing.
