Wattles expect close encounter

A CLOSE day of rugby league is in store tomorrow when the Wattles Warriors travel to Cahill Park in Gatton to take on the Hawks in the Toowoomba Rugby League competition.

In A grade, Wattles and the Hawks will play for outright fifth position on the ladder.

When the A-grade teams met in the first round of this year's competition, the match ended up a draw 22-all, Wattles president Jason Fogarty said.

“I guess this round's going to be pretty tight with all the six top teams,” Fogarty said.

“We're expecting a pretty tough encounter ... in the first round we had a draw with Gatton and I imagine nothing would have changed since then.”

The A-grade team is expected to be back to full strength, with the return of five-eighth Luke Brosnan, who was injured in the local derby with the Warwick Cowboys six weeks ago.

“He hurt his shoulder ... we haven't lost a game since the match with Warwick,” Fogarty said.

“We won our first three games of the season, then we lost three in a row but since then we haven't lost a game.

“The next six weeks is going to tell the story whether we'll shape up to be a finals contender or not.”

The Under 18s will kick of the day's play at 11.30am, followed by Reserve grade at 1pm and the main game at 2.30pm.
