Full­back relishing come­back

Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT -

WARWICK Pearse tried the rest but sim­ply found rugby league the best.

The Cen­tral Bur­nett Brumbies un­der-12 player from Gayn­dah gave up play­ing the sport for one year in his pur­suit of other ath­letic en­deav­ours.

“I had a one-year break in Year 5 be­cause I thought I might try other sports and see what’s out there,” he said.

“I played ten­nis, soc­cer and ath­let­ics, but I missed rugby league so I came back.”

Warwick seems to have made the right de­ci­sion af­ter scor­ing four tries in his Brumbies side’s 44-22 win over the Mur­gon Mus­tangs at Mun­dub­bera.

It was the last of the four tries which the for­mer Gayn­dah Gla­di­a­tors ju­nior said was the pick of the bunch.

“The fi­nal try I did was the best be­cause I did a dummy and then put it down,” he said.

The full­back has con­tin­ued his rich vein of form this sea­son af­ter scor­ing two tries in the first game of the year against the Nanango Stags.

The try-scor­ing ma­chine said he loved play­ing full­back for the Brumbies.

“I love it be­cause you can help other people by back­ing them up and I also like tack­ling, that’s fun,” he said.

“And also you’ve got to be very fast to be a full­back, and I think I’m quick.”

The Brumbies’ next game on May 3 is away against the Kin­garoy Red Ants.

GREAT GAME: Cen­tral Brumbies un­der-12s player Warwick Pearse scored four tries against the Mur­gon Mus­tangs.
