Find out which three forwards starred in Wattles' win
RUGBY LEAGUE: Three forwards have been rated by coach Travis Burns as the best in the Wattles' 44-6 win against Highfields at Highfields on Saturday night.
The win has taken Wattles to the lead in the Toowoomba Rugby League A-grade competition.
Valleys had the bye at the weekend so have a game in hand and are one point behind Wattles.
It is two points for a win and one for a draw in the TRL.
Co-captain Dale Perkins, back rower Ty Gardner and prop Michael Pearson were the best, according to Burns.
"Highfields are a better team than their spot on the table indicates,” he said.
"We had a few out so it was a good win.”
Fullback Andrew Richardson scored four tries and one of the TRL try-scoring leaders, Braydon Wilson, again scored a try.
Wattles are one point behind Valleys in reserve grade after a 26-6 loss against Highfields.
Matt Duggan landed four goals while Richardson and Pearson kicked one each.
Pearson first came to prominence as a goalkicker in juniors and kicked some super goals when he was playing school footy for Stanthorpe State High School.
Wattles travel to Toowoomba to play sixth-placed Souths on Saturday night.
The turnaround in Souths' fortunes has been magnificent after they were virtually finished as an A-grade club at times during the past three years.
Wattles have their second-round bye on the weekend of July20-21. Finals start on August 17.
