Shades of Super Saturday with motorsport and footy

SPORTSVIEW Column with Gerard Walsh

THIS Saturday could be dubbed Super Saturday as two of the biggest events of the sporting year are on in Warwick.

The historic motor racing meeting has 280 nominations and the Queensland Junior Top Guns are aiming for 100 and have $40,000 in prizes to give away.

But this Saturday is not just about motorsport, the Warwick Cowboys can secure a top-five spot with a win in A-grade rugby league while the Warwick reserve grade and second division will be aiming to push their finals chances with wins.

The Warwick Redbacks Aussie rules side is also at home and in need of a win.

It is great to see the Redbacks playing in the top grade and don't be surprised to see us win premiership 2 in the top division in the next year or two.

I have often talked about all clubs organising a day of sport we could dub Super Saturday and get some big names to make it a great weekend.

Down at Clifton on Sunday, it will be the top of the table clash between Wattles and Valleys.

Honour volunteers

I AM constantly amazed by the work done by volunteers across all our sports clubs.

For the past four years, the Condamine Sports Club has presented a volunteer of the year award and I encourage clubs to think about a worthy nominee.

The award is presented at each year's Daily News Junior Sports Star of the Year dinner at Hawker Rd Function Centre around March.

If your club has a volunteer in mind for early next year, please email me at gerardw @warwickdailynews.com.au. The winner's club will receive a $500 cheque from the sports club.
