Fullback relishing comeback
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.
