Cowboys lock delivers '60m' try in win over Dalby

SportsView column with Gerard Walsh

I TURNED up 30 seconds late at the Warwick Cowboys' game against Dalby on Sunday, so missed the chance to see Cowboys lock Sam Broomhall run 40m to score a try.

Like all forwards who score runaway tries, Broomhall is prone to a little exaggeration, claiming to have run 60m.

But with his team winning by four points, one could claim it as a matchwinning try.

Seems it was a bit like the try Allora prop Greg Holmes scored for the Wallabies when he ran from around halfway.

The Cowboys made a few mistakes late in the game against Dalby but kept their heads up and came again to beat the Diehards.

Super ambassador

IF YOU haven't seen a lot of motorcycles in the one spot, consider heading out to Morgan Park for the Warwick round of the Australian Superbike Championships next year.

Riders galore travelled to the Superbikes on their own motorcycles to catch the action last weekend.

I have found winner Wayne Maxwell to be one of the easiest sports stars to interview - he knows all sport wants good publicity.

He even remembered me from two years ago when he also won in Warwick.

There are few better ambassadors for sport than Maxwell.

Finals bound

THERE is a chance Warwick will be represented in four grand finals in Toowoomba and Downs footy.

The Wolves are almost certainties to win the conference grade football, the Water Rats are one of the favourites in B-grade, the Redbacks will mix it with the best in Aussie rules, and in league the Wattles and Warwick are strong chances for the grand final.
