AUSSIE RULES: He's back and on target - After playing for the Warwick Redbacks in the 2014 division 1 grand final victory, Ben Heppel has returned to the club with seven goals in a win against Highfields at Highfields.

The ladder leading Redbacks won 12. 14. (86) to 3. 9 (27) by Highfields.

Heppel scored seven goals and regular top-two goalshooter Nick Donges was next best with two.

Donges, Kris Millard and Heppel are all capable of six goals or more a game which gives Warwick three of the best kickers in the division 2 competition.

Jamie Saunders, Jack Fletcher and Daniel Bowles all landed one goal for the Redbacks.

Best for Warwick were Kai Best, Heppel, Alex Cutmore, Bowles, Saunders and Cameron Peterson.

While it is a different code, Cutmore's extended family has enjoyed a good week of footy with his cousin Tim Glasby playing for Queensland in a State of Origin victory.

Cutmore was one of the top-six in the win at Highfields and is showing the form which has made him one of the best ruckmen on the Downs.
