Com­ple­tion rates up in solid win

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

“COM­PLE­TION rates” are the buzz words at the Brah­mans at the mo­ment and it showed in their per­for­mance on Satur­day night.

Whit­sun­day posted its third win of the sea­son against Mo­ran­bah at the week­end thanks to an abil­ity to main­tain pos­ses­sion.

Ac­cord­ing to coach James Webb the Brah­mans com­pleted 14 of 15 sets in the first half and re­mained “around 75%” in the sec­ond 40 min­utes.

“We have been work­ing on our com­ple­tion rates and get­ting back to ba­sic struc­tured foot­ball be­fore we take our chances,” Webb said of the 26-20 victory.

“With the win out there (Mo­ran­bah) we can start to get mo­men­tum.

“Those tight games will start go­ing our way.”

To the Bull­dogs’ credit they were a vastly dif­fer­ent side to the one that was thrashed by the Brah­mans in March.

“They were a lot bet­ter than when we played them in Mackay,” Webb said.

“I only recog­nised one player but for us it was a re­ally good game of footy.”

James Faust, Phil Ramage, David Kay and Ivan Petelo led the charge for Whit­sun­day, while Rhys Lit­tle bagged a dou­ble.

Af­ter over­com­ing the big- gest road trip in the game, the Brah­mans are now within touch­ing dis­tance of fourth po­si­tion on the Aus­coal Su­per A-grade lad­der.

This week­end all three Whit­sun­day teams will take on the Wests Tigers.
