Warwick hooker makes it into south-east rep side

RUGBY LEAGUE: Warwick- based player Ben Sullivan is one of 12 from the Ipswich Diggers in the south-east Queensland representative team.

The 12 were selected in the team after a Diggers win in the Chairman’s Challenge.

Sullivan will play for south-east Queensland in the Queensland Rugby League State Carnival next month.

Players from the Toowoomba and Border league areas will be represented by the Central Crows at the same carnival.

North Queensland will also play in the carnival.

There is a new format for state carnival footy with the days of the South West Mustangs in state carnival over. Now, players from Toowoomba and Border have to qualify through Central division.

Sullivan is one of six Ipswich Jets in the south- east team which also includes players from Norths, Fassifern, Brothers and Goonda clubs from the Ipswich league.

He played for the Warwick Cowboys A-grade team last year which qualified for the TRL finals. He plays for the Ipswich Jets in the FOGS Cup competition after previously playing Queensland Cup footy for the Norths Devils and for his home-town club Warwick.

Sullivan came off the bench for the Diggers in the challenge carnival but impressed selectors to be named on the bench for south-east.

Cowboys at Brothers

WARWICK Cowboys will play Brothers on the main field at Glenholme Park on Sunday.

The game will be the second successive top-four game for the A-grade Cowboys.

A TRL representative said this week the game would be on the main field after the recent round against Wattles was played on the junior fields.

Halfback Paul Cantwell will be one Warwick player with a lot of responsibility as he is set to mark Michael Witt, a player with experience at NRL level.

Witt is a former Newtown junior who now lives at the Gold Coast and travels to Toowoomba to play. Wattles faces a tough road trip to Goondiwindi on Saturday.
