Desperate for redemption

WARWICK Cowboys are desperate to break their five game losing streak and start moving up the ladder but, in order to do that, will have to defeat Oakey tonight.

Oakey has only won one more game than the Cowboys and sit right above them on the ladder.

Last week coach Ken Coles was confident his team would get one up on Highfields but was proven wrong with the Cowboys losing 44-12.

"I thought they were a big chance of winning last week," Coles said.

"But it was disappointing.

"They played terrible.

"Last week they just did everything wrong.

"They didn't put it together, they made too many mistakes and gave away too many penalties."

Coles said the team had trained hard this week and just needed to get the simple stuff right if players wanted to come up with a win.

Oakey is coming of a big loss, going down to Pittsworth 82-10 last week.

They will have a full team, minus Pat Cameron who is out with a shoulder injury.

The Warwick Cowboys under 18 team is sitting second on the ladder, after losing their first game of the season last week. Coach David O'Leary said tonight's clash against sixth-placed Oakey would not be easy.

"I'm hoping we can get a win," he said.

"Oakey are always tough at home.

"The boys have been training hard and I think they can push Oakey for the win."

Tonight's games will be played at Trevor Mickleborough Stadium in Oakey.

The U18s will kick off at 4.15pm, reserves at 5.40pm and the A-grade side at 7pm.
