Wilted Brumbies rule

Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT - Bran­don Livesay

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.”
