Brothers take Sharks apart
RUGBY League team Brothers remain undefeated after beating the Mossman Port Douglas Sharks in all three grades last weekend.
Mossman A-grade has been pushed down to seventh position on the ladder after losing 44 -10, while reserves lost 44-22 and C-grade was slaughtered 84-28.
The Sharks have a bye this weekend and a chance to redeem themselves with two weeks of hard training to fight for a position in the top five against Yarrabah in what will be a competitive home game on May 12.
Sharks president Bronson Ryan said despite the loss, all grades put up a strong fight and did not make it easy for the top team to win in A-grade.
“Our first half went very well, we were only down 18-10 and again our leaders stood up and did well, both forwards and defence were excellent,” he said.
“What let us down in the second half was discipline, we had a couple of boys sent off and only had 11 players in the last 10 minutes - the Brothers scored some easy tries.
“Against the top team and we’ve got to make sure we have 13 on 13 and be competitive.
“We’re heading in the right direction, we just need to work on our discipline.”
“Overall, our defence was tight and forwards were strong and Brothers had to work hard for their victory.
“Our easybeat label has gone for sure, each team put in 100 per cent and they know it’s a battle, the Sharks are not going to be a walk-over.
“By the time we get them back in game five, round two, we should be strong enough to beat them at home.
“I believe the score didn’t reflect the overall outcome, it was a real battle for 70 minutes we just need a little bit of discipline.”
