The game disappears

There is some record of a few matches in Toowoomba during the early 1940s, however, WWII soon took its toll on the game. The game virtually disappeared in both Toowoomba Warwick during this time. A Telegraph article in 1948 proposes the formation of a junior team, commenting that the game had lapsed in the region many years ago. It appears some junior teams such as Acland continued to play during the 1940s.
