Brumbies charge through
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.
