Warwick forward inspires his teammates

RUGBY LEAGUE: Second rower Josh Cruice puts the success of the Warwick Cowboys so far this season down to each player doing his job.

He has been one of the best players in a season where Warwick has five wins and one loss to be second on the A-grade table.

"The team is going pretty well despite a hurdle last weekend with a two-point loss to Brothers,” he said.

"Everyone knows what their job is in the team and is doing it.

"I am confident we can make the finals.”

This Sunday, Warwick is at home to Pittsworth in all grades, A grade at 2.30pm.

Coach Matt Grew said one of the constants each week for the Cowboys was the hard work of Josh Cruice.

"Josh is a tough player who doesn't say a great deal,” Broomfield said.

"His actions on the field speak louder than words.”

Mitch McMahon has been promoted to the Cowboys starting side at lock.

McMahon was outstanding off the bench last weekend and will replace Toowoomba Clydesdales forward Sam Broomhall who is unavailable.

Grew said Broomhall suffered concussion last weekend and would be assessed again next week before being given the go-ahead to return.

"Mitch has been rewarded for his effort at training and in games with a starting spot.

"He is a great team man,” Grew said.

Captain Mick Broomfield returns from suspension this Sunday to boost the pack.
