MY COMMENT: What a year 2015 was for Warwick sport

WHAT a huge year for sporting clubs in Warwick.

I started here at the Warwick Daily News in June as the back-up sports reporter behind local legend Gerard Walsh (an institution both in Warwick and the Daily News).

In the last six months I have had the absolute pleasure of meeting a myriad sporting club members, volunteers and committee members.

From the revheads at Morgan Park to the hard-knuckled cowboys at the Warwick Rodeo, I've met them all.

When I first started here in Warwick I was worried my love of sports writing would not be a feature of my new position, but the last six months have proven me so very wrong.

I had the chance to interview one of my personal heroes, Wayne Bennett, as the Broncos surged into the NRL grand final and found the rumours were true.

He is a man of very few words.

I made some new heroes along the way, most of them a few years younger than Mr Bennett.

Warwick schools are producing some world beaters, and I am in awe of what some of these students are accomplishing.

Simeon Burrill is taking on the world in orienteering, Matt Denny is smashing records in shot put and these are just to name a couple.

As we turn into a new year the future looks very bright.
