Rats face off against Goondi

THE Warwick Water Rats has a squad of 24 travelling to Goondiwindi for the A-grade rugby union clash today at 3pm.

Water Rats president Justin Wynn said the club had welcomed back Mitchell Lamb after a stint in another code.

“Mitch will play flyhalf,” Wynn said.

“Don Miller will play scrum half in his second game for the club this season.

“Our training this week is as good as any week this season.”

The team is travelling to Goondiwindi by bus for a clash against a top-four team.

Warwick had last weekend off after a disappointing loss to Dalby two weeks ago.


Redbacks week off

THE Redbacks have this week off in the AFL Darling Downs competition before playing Goondiwindi at Goondiwindi on July 10.

Club football operations manager Colin Pope said the game against Goondiwindi would not be easy by any stretch of the imagination, but the break between games would certainly help in getting players back on the paddock.

The tireless trio of on-field leaders Brendan Iles, Kurt Millard and Andrew Bardsley ,who attacked the ball all day in the loss to Coolaroo last weekend, will hopefully inspire team-mates for the rest of the season.

Paul Hutchins, Coen Slatter and Tony Chandler had strong games against Coolaroo, the powerhouse club on the Downs.


Cutters to Texas

THE Killarney Cutters have their toughest road trip when they meet Texas at Texas today in the Border Rugby League.

While the Cutters are yet to win a game this season, they can still make the final four as only one of the five A-grade teams will miss the play offs.

Premiers Stanthorpe are at home to Inglewood while Tenterfield has the bye.


Wolves at home

SOUTH Hawks, from Toowoomba, will travel to Warwick tomorrow for two games of football at Queens Park.

The ladies’ game is at 1pm and men’s premier league fixture at 3pm.

Warwick needs a win in men’s to stay in touch with the top four teams.
