Cowboys suffer second loss but Wattles still unbeaten

RUGBY LEAGUE: The Warwick Cowboys A-grade side has slipped to a 2-2 start, going down 14-6 to Souths at the weekend.

Cowboys coach Jason Bradfield said errors cost his side.

"I couldn't be happier with the effort," Bradfield said.

"We were on top for most of the game but errors hurt us.

"We had our chances but we just couldn't capitalise."

Bradfield said Ben Tyers was one of the standouts.

"Ben was one of our better players," he said.

"But in saying that, it was a real team effort and I could not single out anyone who played poorly."

Bradfield said he was hopeful of turning things around.

"We've got a few guys to come back," Bradfield said.

"It will definitely help us, having those guys back."

The Cowboys were successful in their other two games. The Reggies won 30-6 while the under-18s won a thrilling match 24-22.

Meanwhile outstanding halfback Matt Duggan masterminded yet another Allora-Clifton Wattles win yesterday at Platz Oval as he helped his side beat Brothers 40-20.

The Wattles dominated for the first 40 minutes, scoring five tries to one to lead 30-6 at the break in the Dan Ryan Memorial Shield.

The home side went off the boil for much of the second stanza though.

The Brothers' defence held the Wattles to two tries, while they managed three touchdowns in the same period themselves.
