Brah­mans drop on lad­der af­ter Broth­ers match

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -


MACKAY Broth­ers saw off the Proser­pine Brah­mans 26-16 at Lep­rechaun Park in Mackay on Satur­day with the vis­i­tors drop­ping to third on the lad­der af­ter the loss.

Af­ter a red hot start to the sea­son the Brah­mans have strug­gled over the last few rounds and they again fell short against a de­ter­mined Broth­ers team play­ing in front of their home crowd.

The Mackay side ran in five tries to the Brah­mans three and the 10point de­feat saw the Brah­mans move to a 9-5 win loss record for the 2013 sea­son.

Things should im­prove this week­end when the Brah­mans travel to Jack O’Brien oval in Mackay to take on the last-placed Norths Devils, who are win­less from 14 starts this sea­son.


Broth­ers turned on the style in the re­serves game with a scin­til­lat­ing at­tack­ing dis­play in their 62-12 win.

Eleven tries to the Brethren helped them rack up an im­pres­sive to­tal against the vis­i­tors who strug­gled to keep up the pace against their more ex­pe­ri­enced op­po­nents.

Proser­pine sit in sev­enth place on the lad­der with a 5-9 record and they are fac­ing an up­hill bat­tle to play fi­nals football this sea­son.


Broth­ers’ un­der-18s team were also win­ners on Satur­day with five con­verted tries help­ing them to a 30-12 win.

The Brah­mans un­der-18s have en­joyed a great sea­son so far in 2013 with Satur­day’s loss only their third in 14 games this year.

Cur­rently in sec­ond spot on the lad­der, the Brah­mans looked set for a deep fi­nals run and will hope to re­turn to win­ning ways against Norths this week­end.

All grades play Norths at Jack O’Brien Oval in Mackay this Satur­day.
