Wilted Brumbies rule
THE TRIP to Cherbourg is as tough as it gets in junior footy.
And a hot and muggy Saturday made for some of the toughest conditions the Central Burnett Brumbies will ever play.
The Brumbies Under-14 side proved they were up for any challenge and dominated the Hornets in a masterful 24–0 victory. Cherbourg had no answer for the Brumbies’ swift attack and menacing defence.
The U14s showed they will be a threat to any side in the competition.
The remaining Brumbies teams left Cherbourg with bruised egos, but having learned what will be required to win in the future.
The U10s ended up on the wrong side of a 28–4 score line, the U12s forfeited their match and the U16s were narrowly beaten by a super fast Cherbourg side, 22–16.
Brumbies coach Steve Trott said the Hornets play a different type of football.
“You can play football, but you can’t really gauge yourselves as a team until you play Cherbourg,” Trott said.
“It’s a learning experience and some of these guys will learn the hard way, but it’s good for their game.”
