Redbacks in a key home match in AFLDD competition

AUSSIE RULES: The Warwick Redbacks face South Toowoomba at home on Saturday in the club's most important game of the season to date.

Warwick is in sixth place in the AFL Darling Downs competition and South Toowoomba are the leaders this season.

"We knocked South Toowoomba out in the first week of the finals last season but they are an improved team this season,” he said.

"Potentially we have a better side than last season but are still to show it.”

Coach Ben Heppell said there would be a fair few changes this weekend after the win against Coolaroo.

"We have some players unavailable throughout injuries and work,” he said.

Ruckman Alex Cutmore won't be able to return this week due to commitments in Brisbane where he works.

"We trained well on Tuesday night with 14 players,” he said.

"I am hoping even more players will be at Thursday night training at 6pm at Warwick Credit Union Oval.”

The Warwick team will be at home to South Toowoomba at 2.30pm Saturday.

"We have the potential to be the first team to beat South Toowoomba this season.

"We need to win if we are still wanting to finish in the top two and get two chances in the finals,” he said.

So far this season, Warwick has won against Coolaroo and Toowoomba Tigers and had three losses.
