Brothers to link at the Cowboys for new TRL season
RUGBY LEAGUE: The Galloway brothers will play rugby league together for the first time after the move of Dion to the Warwick Cowboys.
Tonight heralds the start of Cowboys training for the new year with players in all grades welcome at Father Ranger Oval each Tuesday and Thursday from 6pm.
Dylan Galloway was footballer of the year for the Cowboys in 2016 and led the A-grade side to the TRL grand final and will be joined by his older brother Dion this season.
"The only reason I have moved from the Killarney Cutters is to play with Dylan. I am two years older than Dylan but we have never played in the same team,” Dion said.
"We played against each other in the Xylon Smith Memorial game last season.”
Dion has played nine seasons for Killarney. He is a past Killarney club president, captained the side last season and won player of the year in 2014. He plans to help out his hometown club this season when games don't clash with Cowboys commitments.
He isn't just heading to the Cowboys for a run in a trial game with his brother, he is serious about his footy and wants to play A grade and then finals footy in the TRL.
Like his brother, Dion has predominately played in the centres but isn't getting carried away about the number on his back.
"I will play anywhere,” he said.
Dion started pre-season training with the Cowboys before Christmas and said he was delighted with the welcome from the Warwick club.
All players welcome at training. The club plans trial games against Aspley and Wattles in the run up to the start of the TRL season.
