Isis girls go down 46-0 in rugby league grand fi­nal

Isis Town and Country - - SPORT -

WITH last year’s grand fi­nal loss on their mind, the women’s Broth­ers play­ers were not go­ing to let the op­por­tu­nity slip this year to win the ti­tle.

In their most com­plete per­for­mance, the Brethren smashed Isis 46-0 to win the Bund­aberg Rugby League women’s ti­tle un­de­feated with 12 straight wins.

Win­ning their fifth ti­tle in the past six years, they were not trou­bled from start to fin­ish. Coach Glen Darby said the team had a fan­tas­tic prepa­ra­tion be­fore the match.

“The girls turned up right from the first kick-off,” he said.

“They stuck to their struc­tures well and got the ul­ti­mate re­ward.”

Darby said he was also proud of the team play­ing through to the fi­nal whis­tle at the end.

“We had a full team ef­fort from the 19 girls in the side,” he said.

“I was re­ally pleased they didn’t al­low the op­po­si­tion to score and they kept fo­cused un­til the end.”

The focus for the team will now be on their trip to Dar­win on Oc­to­ber 8 and 9 where they will face a Broth­ers out­fit from the North­ern Ter­ri­tory.

“This game has pre­pared us per­fectly for that trip,” Darby said.

“I’ve given the girls tonight (Tues­day) off train­ing but we will be back to it to­mor­row be­fore the trip.”

“We hope to com­plete the sea­son with another win.”

For Isis it was a dis­ap­point­ing way to end a great year for the new side.

Cap­tain Jess Neil said the team strug­gled to cope with Broth­ers all day.

“We stuck it in the best we could,” she said.

“(In the end) we fell to their struc­ture and didn’t keep our com­po­sure. That let us down.”

Neil said they had also re­ceived great sup­port from Childers and the Isis area.

“The com­mu­nity has been be­hind us 100%,” she said.

“It’s given them something to cheer about and win or lose they are al­ways proud of us.

“Hope­fully next year we keep get­ting bet­ter and get back to win the tro­phy.”
