Players keen to line up for club
GEORDIE Beckhouse has been flooded by players keen to play for the Warwick Rebels in the club's first season in the Border Rugby League competition.
The club president said the Rebels had 36 registered players and would definitely play both A and reserve grade this season.
“Numbers have grown since people saw we are fair dinkum,” Beckhouse said.
He stressed the Rebels were keen to work in with the Warwick Cowboys club which fields teams in the Toowoomba competition.
“We aren't in competition with the Cowboys. Most of our players want to play in a social competition on a Saturday afternoon,” Beckhouse said.
“The club is getting 15 to 20 players to training on Tuesday and Thursday at 6.30pm at Eastern Suburbs Oval. Some players can't make it to training due to work commitments.”
After a bye in round one, the Rebels play Stanthorpe in reserve grade at 1pm Saturday at Suburbs oval with the A-grade game to follow.
New jerseys are due in town on Friday.
