Cowboys out class Newtown

The Warwick Cowboys scored a comprehensive win over Newtown last Saturday at the Jack Martin Centre.

The Cowboys went on a try scoring rampage running in 11 tries and while Coach Matt Grew would have been pleased with the team’s attacking performance there is little doubt, he would have been impressed with the Cowboy’s defence as they kept Newtown scoreless. The final score 58-0.

In a season where is little between the top teams on any given day the score line is a boost to the Cowboys for and against margins. The Cowboys are on nine points along with Valleys and defending premiers Goondiwindi. They sit in sixth place behind Valleys but ahead of Goondiwindi.

After a loss to Valleys in the previous round, the Cowboy’s effort in Sunday’s game could not be faulted as they outclassed Newtown. Byron Creighton who started in the second row continued his impressive recent form to head a procession of try scorers adding three tries to his 2022 tally.

The performance of centre Tyrelle Ross was eye catching and it was no surprise that he received three Webcke Price Medal points for his efforts. He is another of the Cowboys who has been in good form and against Newtown had perhaps his best game of the season and crossed twice in the game. Mitch Wilson played another solid game as supporters have come to expect and also scored a double. Other try scorers were Kieran Fender who opened the scoring, Harry Sullivan, Morgan Byrne and co-captain Mick Bloomfield.

Matt Marshall was kept busy with the kicking duties and slotted seven conversions.

Warwick players cleaned up the remaining Webcke Price Medal points. Bryon Creighton received two points and Kieran Fender one point.

This week the Cowboys who are four from eight this season play the South’s Tigers at Gold Park and will be working hard to bank another important two points.

Warwick 58 (Byron Creighton 3, Tyrelle Ross 2, Mitch Wilson 2, Kieran Fender, Harry Sullivan, Morgan Byrne, Michael Bloomfield tries; Mathew Marshall 7 goals) defeated Newtown 0.

In the earlier game, the Reggies had a comfortable 34-8 win running in six tries. Matthew Henry was in charge of kicking duties and nailed five conversions.

The Cowboys under 19’s were defeated 40-12 by a slick Brothers Ipswich Colts outfit.

Heading into round 10 both the Cowboys reserve Grade and Under 19’s are sitting fifth on their respective competition ladders.
