Teach­ers to test Brethren

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

BROTH­ERS face one of the big­gest tests of their char­ac­ter this af­ter­noon as they try to get back to win­ning ways against Teach­ers in the Townsville and Dis­trict Rugby Union.

The Brethren were up­staged 19- 7 by an im­prov­ing North Ward Old Boys last week and it doesn’t get any eas­ier with un­de­feated com­pe­ti­tion lead­ers Teach­ers West at Mike Car­ney Toy­ota Park.

De­spite be­ing un­der­manned with three Queens­land Coun­try play­ers away last week, co- coach Ben Collings said Broth­ers were not happy with giv­ing up a 7- 0 lead.

“We spoke about it the minute af­ter our last game fin­ished that it’s not where we want to be at this time of year,” he said.

Broth­ers have yet to beat Teach­ers this year.

North Ward will be look­ing to build on their re­cent win­ning form when they meet the Bur­dekin at 4.30pm at the Townsville Sports Re­serve, while Ross River will meet Western Sub­urbs at 5.30pm at Mike Car­ney Toy­ota Park.
