THERE’S just one more sleep un­til the NRL Grand Fi­nal and War­wick has well and truly thrown its sup­port be­hind the fairy­tale run of the North Queens­land Cow­boys.

The men from Townsville are look­ing to cre­ate his­tory and be­come the first team to claim a pre­mier­ship from eighth po­si­tion.

South­ern Downs Au­to­mo­tive man­ager and Cow­boys fan Leisa Dwan is head­ing to the game on Sun­day and is ex­pect­ing a big show­ing from her team.

“I’m con­fi­dent that they can get the job done,” Mrs Dwan said.

“The Queens­land fire in their belly will win it for them this week­end.

“They’ve been the un­der­dog this whole time and made it this far.

“My hus­band and I are look­ing for­ward to the game, and it will be some­thing to tick off the bucket list.”

This is the first time Mrs Dwan will see the Cow­boys in a grand fi­nal.

“We watched with the kids in 2015 when they beat the Bron­cos,” she said.

“There were many tears that night.”

Mrs Dwan pre­dicted half­back Michael Mor­gan to take home the Clive Churchill Medal.


YEE-HA: Leisa Dwan is head­ing down to Syd­ney to watch the Cow­boys in the NRL Grand Fi­nal.
