Cowboys seniors aiming to buck the Diehards

RUGBY LEAGUE: Warwick's senior rugby league teams head into round 14 of the Toowoomba Rugby League competition needing some big results.

A disappointing 23-4 loss at home to Souths saw the A-Grade Cowboys drop out of the top six, and they face a daunting task to get their way back into it by Sunday evening.

On Sunday they travel to Dalby to take on the ladder-leading Diehards, who has lost just one game this season.

Dalby suffered their first loss of the season last week, and the Cowboys will need to be at their best against a side looking for revenge.

Coach Craig Mullaly said his side must improve their defence to get the two points.

"We've had a few lapses at the back end of our first halves, so we need to tighten that up on Sunday,” he said.

"We've been working hard at training on our defence.

"We need to play mistake free football and really put some pressure on them.

A-Grade will be without Brodie Quirk (head knock) and Dylan Galloway (shoulder) for the fixture.

The Reserve Grade Cowboys are currently involved in a logjam in the middle of the ladder, and needs a win to earn move to the top of that pack.

They sit on 12 competition points, tied with both Brothers and Souths, and can maintain their spot in the six with a win.

They should be able to take plenty away from their good win over Souths last weekend, when they come up against the third placed Diehards.

2nd Division can find themselves in second spot if results go their way this week, as they play they come off last week's bye.

Football kicks-off this Sunday at 10.10am in Dalby with 2nd Division. The 18's kick-off at 11.30am, with Reserve Grade at 1pm and A-Grade at 2.30pm.
