Water Rats upbeat
WATER Rats president Justin Wynn is upbeat about his side’s chances against St George in A-grade rugby union at 3pm today at Risdon Oval.
After conceding 16 tries last week against USQ, 13 to the opposition wingers, Wynn is delighted his inexperienced backline will be boosted by the return of centre Bob Nicholls and former Darling Downs players Shane Hooper and Waitai Petera today.
“We will use Shane as a super sub,” Wynn said.
Petera is a long-term player for Warwick after playing his early rugby in New Zealand.
Mitch Lamb will move from flyhalf to number eight this week.
Wynn rates his front row as fantastic, and expects much better performances on the field once his outside backs gain more experience.
Killarney to NSW
THE Killarney Cutters will take a squad of 16 to Tenterfield for the Border Rugby League game against the New South Welshmen this afternoon at Tigers Park.
Killarney only had one on the bench in the loss to Inglewood last week, but president John Towells was buoyed by the attendance of 14 players at Thursday night training.
After this weekend, Killarney has one more away game and then three at home during the rest of the fixture season.
In the local derby, Inglewood hosts Texas.
In TRL fixtures tomorrow, Warwick plays Newtown in four games at Newtown and Wattles are at home to Souths.
