Brodie aims for more Clydesdales appearances
BRODIE Quirk started the 2016 rugby league season wanting to play A grade for the Warwick Cowboys and ended up with a grand final appearance and a weekend of games with the Toowoomba Clydesdales.
He is one of the 11 monthly Daily News/Warwick Credit Union Senior Sports Star of the Year winners for 2016 who will be honoured at the annual awards night early this year.
He was selected on the wing for the Toowoomba Clydesdales and played in three games in the Central division trials.
Toowoomba won two of their games and only a loss to Sunshine Coast cost the Clydesdales the chance to claim the divisional title.
Quirk started on the wing in all three games.
He only missed two A-grade games for the season after playing in the 2015 finals series in reserve grade. Quirk had a strong game in the grand final loss to Pittsworth.
Quirk started his rugby league career in the under-11 grade with Collegians and then played for the Cowboys for two seasons in U18s.
The 20-year-old is gearing up to return to Cowboys training on January 10 and prepare for another season in the Toowoomba Rugby League. After a taste of footy with the Clydesdales, he is keen to do it all again.
