Broth­ers’ fi­nal game

Vic­tory puts team back on top of the BRL

Isis Town and Country - - Sport -

BROTH­ERS cap­tain-coach Mat Tem­ple­man was un­der plenty of pres­sure to de­liver his club’s first Bund­aberg Rugby League A-grade ti­tle since 2012 and he turned in a vintage per­for­mance in the 36-24 win over Her­vey Bay.

Tem­ple­man was judged to be the best player on the field in the em­phatic win in front of a vo­cal crowd and his two tries set up the win.

The game was up for grabs in the sec­ond half and it was back-to-back tries to Tem­ple­man on the right edge that sealed the win.

Af­ter the game he was quick to praise some of the other play­ers in blue and white who starred in the win.

Tem­ple­man was im­pressed with Tien Nguyen’s three tries, Vahiti Hopoi’s steam­rolling runs and Brent Kuskey’s out­stand­ing com­poser in at­tack and de­fence.

From the start of the game Her­vey Bay was in­tent on mak­ing life hard for Broth­ers with big hits and nig­gling tac­tics but Broth­ers would not be drawn into the trap.

Broth­ers Jake Carl and Her­vey Bay’s Clancy Fal­lon were sent from the field in the first half af­ter a fight broke out and from then the play­ers got the mes­sage that it would not be tol­er­ated.

Along with Tem­ple­man, Kuskey, Hopoi and Nguyen, the Broth­ers bench play­ers made a great con­tri­bu­tion.
