Warwick and Goondiwindi high schools tops in Broncos sport

SCHOOL SPORT: Warwick and Goondiwindi state high schools shared the spoils in A-grade cup sport in Broncos Challenge finals in Warwick yesterday.

Warwick High beat Goondiwindi High 26-10 in the A cup final while Goondwindi High beat Allora/Killarney/Clifton state schools in A-grade netball.

Trophies were presented by four guests from the Broncos, Origin legend Michael Hancock and development staff Paul Dyer, Wayne Weekes and Jett Walters.

The Broncos staff coached at Warwick West and Glennie Heights state schools and St Mary’s yesterday and will coach at St Mary’s and Assumption this morning. They were assisted by NRL game development staff Jim Stevens and Scott Morton.

Hancock and Dyer have been regulars at Broncos Challenge finals down the years. For Hancock, it is a chance to watch players from Stanthorpe, a town where he played his first senior footy.

During the finals, there were 15 games between 10 schools across the Southern Downs and Border areas. The top two in each grade play in cup finals, the next two in plate finals and the bottom two contested the bowls.
