Rats make it three in succession against big three in rugby
RUGBY UNION: The Warwick Water Rats have beaten the big three in Darling Downs Rugby Union in successive games.
After wins against Goondiwindi and USQ, Warwick hosted Dalby and won 12-10 on Saturday in B grade.
Warwick led 12-5 at half-time after tries by loose head prop Dean Cullen and winger Adrian Paaka and a conversion by Jacob Polzin.
The second half was a arm wrestle with Dalby scoring in the corner with six minutes to go.
The conversion hit the crossbar and didn't go over and Warwick held on to win 12-10.
Coach Vlad Savovski said flanker Jared Fearby was his best.
"Jacob Polkin was strong at fullback and set up the try for Adrian Paaka as part of a good backline movement,” Savovski said.
"Patrick Black was effective off the bench in the second row.”
Warwick is in equal fifth spot with Rangers and the two teams meet on Saturday at 1.30pm at Gold Park.
The Warwick women have friendlies against Bears and USQ at Heritage Oval on Saturday. Neither game is for competition points.
