Premiers too strong for Warwick
A TRY by Mick O’Keefe was a highlight as Warwick went down 68-4 to premiers Valleys in Saturday’s A-grade rugby league game at Father Ranger Oval.
Second rower Brayden Hockings and halfback Paul Cantwell received the top player awards for the Cowboys.
Coach George McVeigh admitted Valleys were just too good for his side.
“We were in the game for 30 minutes and due to dropped ball, we did a lot of work in defence,” McVeigh said.
Valleys won reserve grade 58-6 and the under-18 clash 36-12.
Wattles go down
THE curtain fell on the Wattles’ 2011 season at Dalby yesterday afternoon with the Warriors suffering defeats in all three grades.
The depleted first grade side lost to the Diehards 33-18, after trailing 6-14 at half-time.
Well performed reserve grade half of recent weeks Jordan Henry debuted in top grade, playing hooker in the absence of usual rake Liam Ross.
Wattles had to wait until the 39th minute to score their first points, a try by five-eight Jeff Nielson just prior to the half-time hooter.
Aaron Scheid was the Wattles’ best player, while 17-year-old Lee Lousick also excelled in the Wattles’ engine room along with classy back-rower Luke Baker.
Wattles lost reserve grade 32-22 and went down 30-28 in the under-18 game.
