First-time player impresses for the women Water Rats

RUGBY UNION: Warwick Water Rats women's 7s played at Goondiwindi on Saturday and came home with two wins and one loss.

The side was missing a few forwards - leaving it mostly backline players but it was boosted by the late addition of Carly Cooper and newcomer Rachel Timmers.

They took on the Toowoomba Bears in their first game and were led strongly by Kelley Mooney, giving them a 20-15 win, their first victory over the Bears this season.

They then played Goondiwindi and went down by a conversion 19-17.

Their last game was against Gatton, which had run out of steam and Warwick took full advantage, winning 49-0.

Sammie Burton made some great runs throughout the day with Juliette Cronin running away with plenty of tries.

Timmers settled in perfectly, running with the ball at every opportunity.

It was a successful day for the Water Rats women.

Their next round of games is in Condamine on Saturday week.

They have their training session each Thursday night at Risdon Oval.

MEN'S RUGBY UNION: In men's B-grade, Warwick went down 31-5 to top-two team Goondiwindi.

This weekend, Warwick is at home on ladies day on Saturday to USQ.

B -grade will be at 1.30pm and the A-grade game between UQ Gatton and USQ is at 3pm.

UQ Gatton A-grade is playing on the same program as Warwick B-grade for many games this season.

The B-grade Water Rats train each Tuesday and Thursday.
