Brothers score six tries between them for the Cowboys

RUGBY LEAGUE: The Watson brothers were the toast of the Warwick Cowboys after scoring three tries each in a 52-18 victory against Aspley at Father Ranger Oval on Saturday night.

Warwick scored 10 tries and landed six goals in the A-grade victory.

Mitch Watson is still eligible for under-18 footy but was promoted to the wing in A grade and scored three tries while his older brother Dan, 19, scored three tries and landed six goals after playing on the other wing.

"I am keen to play some more A grade," Mitch said.

"I wasn't too nervous at the start."

The majority of Dan's goals on Saturday night were from the sideline.

"I missed a few of the easier ones," he said.

Dan played his first season of A grade last season and performed well in the grand final loss to Pittsworth.

The reality is if the wingers score six tries between them, there is a strong chance some of the conversions will be from the sideline.

Mitch isn't trying to snatch the goalkicking role from his brother.

"I don't kick goals," he said.

Jordyn Hogden was best forward for Warwick and Dan Watson the best back.

The best for Aspley in A grade were Joe Wilson and Wayde Robin.

The reserve-grade game was a 22-all draw.
