Warwick Cowboys in top five clash on Sunday

RUGBY LEAGUE: It will be Warwick against the unbeaten Souths in today’s Toowoomba Rugby League A-grade game at Father Ranger Oval at 2.30pm.

The Cowboys will field the same team that conceded three late tries to go down to Brothers last Sunday. Warwick is one of four teams equal second on competition points behind Souths.

Coach Craig Mullaly said the team had trained well during the week.

“Mistakes hurt us last Sunday so we want to up our completion rates this week,” Mullaly said.

“Souths has two of the leading tryscorers in the competition in Corey Blades and Aaron Hooper so our defence will have to be good. We have to be good across the park.”

Sam Broomhall was the top Cowboys tackler last week while Paul Cantwell had another strong game at half-back.

With two games to go in the first round, Warwick has a chance of making the Madsen Rasmussen Trophy final if they can win both games.

“I am not focusing on the trophy final, the priority is to win this weekend and then think about Goondiwindi at Goondiwindi.”

A hot rumour in the Cowboys is the likely return in second-division at 10.10am today of Shaun “Robbo” O’Leary. He will be likely to play hooker or in the inside backs, he hasn’t put on enough weight in his 30s to be in the second row.
