RUGBY LEAGUE: Prop Frank Hankinson will be one of the trump cards for the Warwick Cowboys second division side that plays Gatton at 10am Sunday in the TRL President's Cup final.

The second division final is the first of four on a day that will climax with the Madsen Rasmussen Trophy final in A-grade between the unbeaten Dalby and a Valleys side coached by former NRL player Brett Seymour.

All the finals will be played at Valleys' home ground Herb Steinohdt Oval.

David Hallman is captain-coach of the Warwick second division side after playing his 300th game for the club last weekend in reggies.

Hankinson has played A-grade for the Cowboys and will form a strong front row in second division with Lindsay Locke and hooker Nick Cussen, both long-time players for the Cowboys.

Scott Fisher is at halfback and one of the experienced players in the side. Shaq Tonga will be one of the attacking weapons for the Cowboys.

Warwick missed the under-18 final by one competition point but coach Matt Grew is eyeing off a top performance in the end-of-season finals as the Cowboys aim for successive grand final appearances in U18s.

Other than second division, all Warwick and Wattles teams have the weekend off.

TEAM: Travis McArthur, Kevin Poole, Mitchell Washbourne, Brock Eastwell, Zac O'Connor, Kenny Parsons, Scott Fisher, Lindsay Locke, Nick Cussen, Frank Hankinson, David Hallman, Kalum McKenzie, Brenton Herrmann, Shaquille Tonga, Dale Lee, Matthew Lawrance, Malcolm Duff, Ben Eastwell, Tristan Rickert, Cameron Schmidt, James Reynolds. Coach David Hallman, manager Paul Hallman.
