Cowboys claim win from behind

JARRED Bradfield was the best player as the Warwick Cowboys beat Gatton 36-24 in yesterday's A-grade game at Father Ranger Oval.

Warwick led 10-0 after 10 minutes before conceding three tries to trail 16-10 at half-time.

Coach Gary Lawrence said his side scored some of its best tries of the season.

"The best was a try by Jarred who ran 25m after receiving a short inside ball from half-back Trent Achilles," Lawrence said.

"We played to our potential and our bench got us home in the end."

Hooker Paul Cantwell and Achilles also played well.

Lawrence said a large number of players were keen to sit on the bench for A-grade which was great news for the club with two games to go.

"The club was happy to win all three games. We lost all three in the first round at Gatton," Lawrence said.

Warwick scored seven tries and landed four goals.

The only injury concern is prop Ben Brownlie who has a neck problem.

Warwick won reserve grade 46-12 and the under-18 game 32-8.

 

Wattles down to Gundy at Gundy

WATTLES lost 72-10 to Goondiwindi in the Saturday night A-grade game at Goondiwindi.

Jordan Henry, Glen McMillan, Liam Ross and Lauchlan Hoey were the best for Wattles.

In reserves, Wattles lost 36-6 and also went down 52-12 in the under-18 game after the score was 14-12 at half-time.

Some Wattles players didn't show up at Goondiwindi which meant a number of A-graders also played reserves.

Wattles are at home to Brothers on Sunday at Platz Oval.
