Sharks lack the bite to tame versatile Brothers
ADAPTABILITY is one of the keys to success in the CDRL and Innisfail Brothers are already the masters after a tough win in Mossman.
The score on Saturday night might have ended up 40-6 but Innisfail coach Leon Hallie said that didn’t tell the story of the game.
Mossman/Port Douglas started the strongest, scoring the first try as the visitors initially found it difficult to get in the game.
The Leps slowly turned the tide to make it 18-6 at the break and were made to earn every point against the sizeable Sharks pack.
“We had to work hard for it,” Innisfail coach Leon Hallie said of the win.
“The scoreline probably doesn’t reflect the contest. That was a good win up there.”
The first three matches have all posed different challenges for Innisfail.
Round 1 against Tully was effectively a walk in the park, dominating all facets of the game.
The next week they were under the pump for much of the game against Mareeba, but were in the game right up until the final minutes.
This Saturday the Sharks confront fellow cellar dwellers Edmonton at Mossman Showgrounds.
Kickoff from 6pm.
