Cowboys will blood new players in tonight's game

RUGBY LEAGUE: The Warwick Cowboys have named a team with a mix of grand-final players from last year and some players new to A grade for the clash with Aspley at Father Ranger Oval at 6.30pm tonight.

Grand final halfback Paul Cantwell will play in that time of the season when he mixes cricket with Wheatvale and rugby league.

Coach Craig Mullaly said Mitch Watson, Brad Morrish and Greg Hoffman would make their A-grade debuts.

"The young blokes have been training well and putting the effort in,” he said.

"Lachlan Palmer played rugby for the Downlands First XV then rugby league at Quilpie,” Mullaly said.

"He now has a job in Warwick and has joined the Cowboys. Lachlan is a grandson of long-time supporter and club volunteer Toby Eather and adds size to our pack.”

Hard-running forward Mick Bloomfield is training hard but will miss the pre-season and first two TRL games after being suspended late last season.

The reggies will play in the curtain raiser at 5pm.

After this weekend, the Cowboys will play Wattles on March 4 and Killarney on March 11.

TEAM: Craig Donn, Dan Watson, Joe Fuimaono, Brodie Quirk, Mitch Watson, Brad Morrish, Paul Cantwell, Darren Pettiford, Mitch McMahon, Lachlan Palmer, Jordyn Hodgen, Greg Hoffman, Josh Cruice, Dion Galloway.
