Cowboys host anniversary games against Pittsworth on Saturday in rugby league
RUGBY LEAGUE: The three Warwick Cowboys representative players will return for the game against Pittsworth tomorrow night as part of club 30th anniversary celebrations.
Winger Brodie Quirk and forwards Sam Broomhall and Trent Richardson played for Toowoomba a fortnight ago in the 47 Battalion carnival at Roma.
The Cowboys will play four games against Pittsworth, starting with second division at 2.10pm, tomorrow.
In 1986, Warwick, Stanthorpe and Gatton were admitted to the TRL competition and Warwick won reserve grade the same year, A grade in 1987 and both A and reserve grades in 1988.
Tony McGahan, the current Melbourne Rebels rugby coach, captained the Cowboys’ U18 side which was coached by David Abood to the club’s first premiership at underage level in 1990.
Club president David O’Leary said the aim of the day was to get past players, officials, coaches, sponsors and fans together to talk about old times.
“We beat Pittsworth to win our first A-grade grand final in 1987 so it is appropriate the club celebrates 30 years in a round against the Danes,” O’Leary said. “Every player, other than Luke Brosnan, is available for selection in A grade. We are fourth on the table and Pittsworth second so we will see where we stand this weekend.”
Warwick also plays Brothers and Souths from the top-four in the next three weeks.
