RUGBY LEAGUE: Warwick Cowboys halfback Paul Cantwell is looking forward to the challenge of playing against former NRL player Brett Seymour at Father Ranger Oval on Sunday.

Seymour played NRL and Super League footy and is in his first season with Valleys in Toowoomba. He played 123 NRL games for Brisbane, Cronulla and Warriors and 29 in Super League in England.

Cantwell remembers being in A grade when the Cowboys played a Brothers team including State of Origin player Jason Smith.

"It is good to play against the best, it gives us an extra challenge,” he said.

Seymour is set to be in the inside backs against a Warwick team with Cantwell at half and Brad Morrish at five-eighth.

"Brad is in his first year out of under-18s and is getting better each week,” Cantwell said.

While Cantwell has done a lot of general kicking down the years and hooker Mitch McMahon is an accomplished kicker, Morrish is taking a lot of the kicking responsibility.

There was no TRL footy at Easter so the Cowboys have had two weeks training leading up to the Valleys game.

"Training has been pretty intense, hopefully we will go alright,” he said.

"Prop Darren Pettiford has been training really well.”

The Cowboys have won two from four so Cantwell knows the importance of staying on the right side of a win/loss equation.

In other rugby league games, Wattles host Highfields on Saturday and it is week 1 on Saturday in the Warwick and District Junior Rugby League. The Border Rugby League season will start on May 6.

Sunday game times

Under 18 - 10.10am; C grade - 11.30am; Reserve grade - 1pm; A grade - 2.30pm.
