Forward kicks seven as Warwick hits top form

AUSSIE RULES: Tony Chandler won the Horse and Jockey award for best player after a starring effort in his 150th game for the Warwick Redbacks.

Going into the game at Warwick Credit Union Oval on Saturday, Warwick and Highfields were equal third so a close game was expected.

Warwick made sure they were going to win from the first bounce and scored a 22.17. (149) win against the 4.7. (31) of Highfields.

Chandler rose to the occasion in what was a special game for him and the club.

He played centre half back for Warwick and was outstanding along with Tyhe Clarkson in midfield, forward Kris Millard who kicked seven goals and young gun Nathan Cooney on the half back flank.

Coach Ben Heppell was happy with the win and is determined for Warwick to finish in the top three to secure two chances in the finals series.

Warwick and Coolaroo are equal third on points and play each other on Saturday at Rockville in Toowoomba.

Coolaroo beat leaders Goondiwindi on the weekend so are in form,

Chandler said if the club could field its best side every week, the Redbacks could absolutely win the premiership.

Highfields came to Warwick with only 17 players and the clubs agreed to play 16 a side.
