FOR Cen­tral Bur­nett Brumbies un­der-14 hooker Cal­lum Evans, play­ing rugby league is about be­ing part of the team.

“I just love how we come to­gether as a team,” Cal­lum said.

“We have good games and bad games.

“When we have good games it’s re­ally fun work­ing to­gether, get­ting with your mates.”

De­spite the Brumbies’ 34–0 loss to Nanango on Satur­day ref­er­ees pointed Cal­lum out as a stand­out player.

“It does feel good (be­ing pointed out), but I could point out some of the best play­ers in our team too,” he said.

“Per­son­ally it wasn’t one of my best (games), but we played as a team pretty well.

“We dropped ball in our first half, it re­ally killed us.”

The Brumbies U12 team de­feated Mur­gon 32–14.

For the U16 team, it was a dif­fer­ent type of game.

They played the Gayn­dah Masters in a fun train­ing game.

Masters cap­tain Brad Schif­fke said com­pet­ing against the U16s was fun.

“The boys played foot­ball in good spirit,” Schif­fke said.

“It was more of a train­ing run for (the U16s) and for us for the games com­ing up.”

The game was played in such good spir­its that when Masters play­ers went to tackle Brumbies play­ers, they oc­ca­sion­ally lifted them up and car­ried them around the field.

“As long as ev­ery­one en­joyed it, that is the main thing,” Schif­fke said.

Fol­low­ing all of the Brumbies games, a spe­cial pre­sen­ta­tion was made to Gayn­dah rugby league leg­end Peter Dunn from Men of League.

The var­i­ous Brumbies age groups and the Masters formed a guard of hon­our for Peter Dunn.
