Cowboys tackle the mighty Danes
THE Warwick Cowboys will have to make sure they pack their lassos if they want to capture a round five win over the Pittsworth Danes tonight.
Pittsworth is placed second on the Toowoomba Rugby League ladder, having only lost one game so far this season.
Cowboys on the other hand have not had a win for three straight rounds, despite coming close twice.
Cowboys coach Ken Coles said his team played well for the first 60 minutes last week, then let Gatton slip through.
"It is going to be a tough game," Coles said.
"We are trying to get our head in the game for 80 minutes.
"We have come close the last two games but they just haven't been able to go the 80 minutes."
Coles said it was not a fitness issue.
"I just think it is a learning curve more than anything else," he said.
"We are a very good chance if we play for the full 80 minutes.
"Which is what I'm hoping will happen."
Coles said Cowboys had lost three players to injury for tonight's clash.
"But that is just part of life," he said.
The Cowboys reserve side will also have a tough fight on their hands this afternoon.
They are currently sitting in ninth place while Pittsworth is on top of the ladder after claiming victory in all four games so far this season.
On the other hand, the under-18 Cowboys side is yet to lose a match this year and is sitting pretty on the top of the ladder.
The Warwick U18s will definitely be the favourites when they kick off against the home side, which is winless, at 4.15pm today at Pittsworth Rugby League Club.
The reserves game will start at 5.40pm followed by A grade at 7pm.
