They came, they saw, they Stunned. Northern Queensland’s Stunned Mullets have once again taken out the annual Warwick Cricket Australia Day Carnival held Friday and Saturday.

The team which includes former Olympic hockey player and Warwick boy Dean Butler have now dominated the competition for the past five years. The team has players from Cairns and Rockhampton who come to town to play.

Warwick Cricket Association president Andrew Bryson said it was a great event again this year.

“Australia Day Carnival seemed to be pretty successful, with one of the best attended finals seen at Slade Park for some years.

“Stunned Mullets once again proved too strong despite dropping a game on day one to end up comfortably winning of Doc’s XI.

“Ross XI enjoyed their best carnival to date, officially finishing 3rd outright.”

This week, back to regular 40 over fixtures with all games being played on Saturday due to Mitchell Shield on Sunday.

Due to recent rain grounds are yet to be confirmed but games are as follows.

Redbacks v Wheatvale, Colts v Victoria Hill and Allora v Sovereign.
