Cowboys' touching gesture for injured rival

RUGBY LEAGUE: Five things that readers may not know about the weekend TRL footy.

Cowboys help out: Three Warwick Cowboys players showed sportsmanship galore when they helped a Dalby player off the field in the A-grade Cowboys' 22-18 win against Dalby at Father Ranger Oval.

The injured player was closer to the Warwick players but they pitched in to help Dalby inside back Dylan Taylor from the field.

The Cowboys trio were Jarred Bradfield, Joe Fuimaono and Craig Donn.

Suspect that won't happen at State of Origin on Wednesday night.

Prop impresses: Warwick Cowboys under-18 prop Jye Barrett was outstanding in his side's 18-16 loss to President's Cup winners Dalby.

Warwick coach Josh Williams said Barrett gave away up to 40kg to two of the props from Dalby but was simply outstanding.

The Cowboys desperately needed to win and are now three wins out of the top five.

Perkins gets the nod: There wasn't too much out of the ordinary in the Wattles' win against Highfields and coach Travis Burns again praised highly the work of Stanthorpe player Dale Perkins.

When pressed about his best trainer, Burns took a while to decide on Perkins.

Wattles must be training well, they are on top of the table.

Top chase: Harry Sullivan moved from wing to the halves in Sunday's game against Dalby and showed his speed to run down Dalby fullback Corey Blades, regarded as one of the speedsters in the TRL. Blades broke away from halfway and Sullivan saved a certain try with his defence.

Crucial kick: Captain Mick Bloomfield is like Melbourne Storm captain Cameron Smith.

When he needs to land a goal, he usually does.

On Sunday, Joe Fuimaono scored the winning try wide out and then Bloomfield landed the goal from 10m inside the sideline to give the Cowboys a four-point buffer.

A two-point lead can often result in the score being levelled by a penalty goal.
