Seven from Warwick and Wattles in Central Crows victory
RUGBY LEAGUE: Warwick hooker Ben Sullivan and Wattles half Matt Duggan have been selected in the Central Crows team to play in the state divisional championships.
The pair was part of a group of seven players from the two clubs to win this year's Central division 47th Battalion championships with the Toowoomba Clydesdales team.
After losing narrowly to the Sunshine Coast in last year's final in Toowoomba, the Clydesdales beat the same opposition 20-6 in this year's grand final. It was a win first up for new coach Nathan Murphy.
The Warwick and Wattles players in the winning team were Sullivan, Duggan, Sam Broomhall, Ty Gardner, Nathan Gaulton, Joe Fuimaono and Dale Perkins.
In their first game, Toowoomba won 48-0 against the Burnett Brahmans.
Sullivan and Gardner scored tries and Duggan scored a try and landed eight goals.
In their second game, Toowoomba won 26-0 against Bundaberg Bears. Duggan scored a try and landed three goals.
Four teams, including the Central Crows, will play in the state divisional championships as a forerunner to the selection of the Queensland Rangers team.
Duggan has previously played for the Rangers but Sullivan will be aiming for the first appearance for the Rangers at his third state divisional championships.
He first played at state championship level when playing for South East Queensland and was part of last year's Clydesdales team.
