FINAL SCORE: Warwick wins Barrett Shield showdown

FINAL UPDATE: After a rain-soaked Barrett Shield clash, the Warwick Cowboys have run away victorious beating the Wattles 24-18.

Allora scored first early on in the first half thanks to a penalty goal, but Warwick took the lead soon after and were never threatened in a tough and physical contest.

Thanks to the wet conditions, ball control was difficult and both sides coughed up several chances to see out the full set of six tackles.

A breakaway try from Dion Galloway in the dying minutes of the match, brought the crowd into full voice and sealed the match for the Cowboys. 

A late Allora try wasn't enough to stop the Barrett Shield being handed to winning captain Dylan Galloway.

Player of the Match went to the Cowboys halfback Paul Cantwell.

Despite the banter and pre-season build up, the match between neighbouring rivals was played in the good spirits crowds have become accustomed to.
