The Warwick Cowboys sent an ominous warning to the teams in the TRL finals after making it five wins on the trot to close out the 2019 TRL fixtures. the Cowboys left one of their bet games of the season for last when they gave Brothers an absolute bath in their final home game of the season last Saturday night.
The Cowboys head into this weekend’s qualifying final against Wattles after inflicting a brutal 44-28 win on Brothers.
Craig Donn who has been consistent all season opened the scoring for the Cowboys when the game was just six minutes old. The try opened the flood gates as the home-side scored another four tries before Dalby managed to get points on the board three minutes from half time.
Mick Bloomfield kicked four from five conversions in the first half and at the break the score was 28-6 and the Cowboys were already making a statement.
As the temperature at Fr Ranger Oval plummeted the second half commenced much the same as the first with the Cowboy’s on fire. It took under a minute for Cowboys captain Mick Bloomfield to claim his sixth try of the season but he was unable to convert his own try. Brothers centre Alex Rangiira was the next to score but that would be the last points Brothers posted as the Cowboys ran amok. They notched up five more tries before the full time siren put Brothers supporters out of their misery.
In all the Cowboys scored 11 tries. Harry Sullivan led the way with a hat trick and Craig Donn a double. A posse of Cowboys lined up to score in the game including Mitch Watson, Joe Fuimaono, Tyrelle Ross, Mitch McMahon and Ben Sullivan. Captain Mick Bloomfield contributed 20 points to the overall total. He nailed eight conversions in addition to a try.
Craig Donn picked up the three points for the Webcke Medal after another great performance. Cowboy’s Mr Reliable Sam Broomhall received one point.
