Cowboys fans can secure seats in the grandstands

WARWICK Cowboys fans wanting to get a good seat in the grandstand at Sunday's TRL A-grade grand finals are advised to come well before 3pm.

With 400 Cowboys finals shirts bought, a massive Warwick crowd is expected to watch a team that has won two finals games in succession to secure a grand final spot.

While a small part of the seating will be reserved for clubs, the majority of seats will be available on a first in, first served, basis. There is no additional charge for a grandstand seat in either the main or southern stands at Clive Berghofer Stadium.

There is also outdoor seating around the ground. The stadium is in Arthur St, just north of Queens Park.

Gates open at 8.30am with the first game to start at 10am between Newtown and Gatton in the second division.

The under-18 game between Dalby and Gatton is at 11.20am and the reserve grade grand final between Gatton and Valleys at 1pm.

There is no parking at the grounds but street parking is near the grounds and Queens Park.

Tickets are available at the gate, $10 for adults, $5 for pensioners and children 14 to 18 years. Admission is free for children 13 and under.

At the last Warwick home game for the season, a group of Cowboys supporters in the stand called themselves the WAGS, a name used for wives and girlfriends.

There will be many mothers of Warwick players happy to be with the WAGS on Sunday.

Warwick has won premierships in lower grades but as for A grade, Warwick last won in 1987 and 1988 under the coaching of Brian Dunne.

Dunne was captain in 1987 and hooker George McVeigh captain in 1988.

Warwick lost to Oakey in 1999 and had a team including Simon Scanlan and Christian Robertson who played grade footy in Sydney.

The Cowboys almost scored in the corner on fulltime when they trailed Pittsworth by six points in the 2016 grand final.

Three years ago, Matt Grew coached the under-18 team to the grand final, this time he has the A graders in his charge.

Star winger Mitch Watson is one of the players who was in the under-18 grand final in 2016 and also in this year's A-grade grand final team.
