Warwick Cowboys Rugby League
THE Cowboys got off to a great start at Father Ranger Oval last Sunday with dominant wins in under 18, C and reserve grades and looked set to send Brothers home with nothing.
However the Lee Wharton-coached Brothers A-grade squad had other ideas and showed us up all over the park to win 40-12.
The Cowboys have a bye this weekend and will have to work hard in preparation for our clash with the tough Dalby outfit a Father Ranger Oval on Sunday week. This weekend the Cowboys are assisting hockey with their carnival and anyone with a few hours to spare is invited to the Cowboys Clubhouse to help cater for what is expected to be a huge crowd over the three-day carnival.
Tomorrow night, the Cowboys raffles night is at Condamine Sports Club. Help from members would be appreciated.
The U18 Cowboys produced a dominant display against Brothers to win 78-14.
Coach George McVeigh is pleased his side is starting to realise its potential. Brayden Hockings, Luke Coombes and Dylan Watt had a high work rate while Joe McIvor had his best game for the year.
Jeremy Jerome, Paul Cantwell and Mitchell (Space) Lewis caused all sorts of trouble for the visitors. Team effort all round with Sam Olsen, Michael O'Keefe, Eamon Brownlie, Michael West, Ty Bryan and Jack Thomas all giving 100 per cent.
Injuries to Rick McGahan and Blake Doro took the shine of an otherwise convincing win. Best forward and players' player was Luke Coombes with Paul Cantwell the best back.
The Mullaly Concreting/Carey Bros C grade boys chalked up another good win beating Brothers 46-12. Apart from a couple of defensive lapses late in the game it was a near perfect game by the Mark “Chookie” Fowler-coached outfit. The Bohm Brothers were at their devastating best with Matthew receiving best forward and Denis sharing best back with the untouchable Leon Close.
Evergreen halves combination James Jerome and Fowler, guided the boys around the park beautifully.
