RUGBY LEAGUE: Four Emer­ald Brothers teams went into the Cen­tral High­lands Ju­nior Rugby League grand fi­nals, with two emerg­ing vic­tors at the week­end.

With two Brothers teams play­ing off for the tro­phy in the un­der-13 di­vi­sion and a side in each of the U15 and U17 games, Emer­ald Brothers Ju­nior Rugby League Club pres­i­dent Craig Twad­dle said it was a great re­sult for the club.

“Last year we had four teams in the grand fi­nal as well so to have four teams back in the grand fi­nal this year, it’s re­ally a fan­tas­tic achieve­ment by every­body – the coaches, play­ers, coach­ing staff, par­ents – every­body,” he said.

“I’m ex­tremely proud of the four teams on mak­ing the grand fi­nal and fin­ish­ing the year on a high.

“We won two pre­mier­ships, it would’ve been great to win three, but that’s foot­ball.”

A highlight of the grand fi­nals se­ries for Twad­dle was the U15 game be­tween the Emer­ald Brothers and Emer­ald Tigers.

“I thought the U15 game was a real highlight due to the fact the Brothers and the Tigers U15 teams have played each other very of­ten,” he said.

“But on Satur­day the Brothers left the best to last and the fi­nal score was 34-16.

“I thought that was out­stand­ing.

“To have the U13s play against each other was also an out­stand­ing achieve­ment.”

The fi­nals were held in Cler­mont and Twad­dle praised the Cler­mont club for putting on a great day.

With the sea­son now over for the ju­niors, Twad­dle summed up the past year as “fan­tas­tic”.

“It was a re­ally great sea­son, we won two pre­mier­ships, had nu­mer­ous play­ers se­lected for rep­re­sen­ta­tive teams and our tour­ing sides go away and per­form well.”
