Reddies playing at their best

AUSSIE RULES: The Warwick Credit Union Redbacks stand-in coach Ray Lawer certainly lived up to his nickname "Razor" when he set loose an undermanned but super sharp combination onto Cahill Oval on Saturday.

With the final scoreboard registering a 27.28.190 to 3.0.18 win, the message of "perform or lose your place" in a finely tuned team has hit home.

Every player stood tall and at no stage did they digress from the coach's game plan.

Only 20 strong, but with excellent on-field leadership through skipper Alex Cutmore, his deputy Thye Clarkson and tireless all-round utility Brendan Iles, the WCU Reddies went on a mission to destroy the opposition and they did it in style.

As was pointed out at training through the week, the conversion percentage rate of goals versus points in last week's game was below standard.

This is still a huge problem and if not rectified for their next clash in a fortnight, it may come back and bite them where they least want to be bitten.

Best players: Brendan Iles, Coen Slatter, Alex Pitt, Kurt Heier, Brent Walker and Thye Clarkson.

Goal scorers: K. Heier 8, A. Pitt 5, B. Iles 4, D. Randall 3, M. Quaife 2, T. Clarkson, B. Walker, S. Cameron, C. Slatter and J. McKendry 1 each.
