Brah­mans record best win

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

It was their best per­for­mance of the year but the Brah­mans are hop­ing last Sun­day’s 48-point win is a sign of things to come.

Whit­sun­day bat­tered Broth­ers at Les Stagg Oval, run­ning out 48-0 win­ners in what coach James Webb de­scribed as the team’s most com­plete out­ing.

“It was a turn­ing point for us, it was a game that we’ve been look­ing for,” he said.

“Broth­ers have put points on ev­ery team they’ve played and we wanted a game where we came up against a side like that and kept them to zero. For a lot of the game, we stuck to our struc­ture and it worked.We went away from things a bit in the sec­ond half but it’s hard to stick to struc­tures when blokes are mak­ing breaks on sec­ond tackle.”

For­mer Cut­ter Rohan Ah­ern starred along­side Grant Cooke, us­ing their phys­i­cal­ity to stretch Broth­ers while Sam Key and Cal­lum Wilkin­son were also lively.

This week­end, the Brah­mans will play last year’s pre­miers Souths Sharks in Mackay.

“We’ll have a few play­ers out this week­end but we’ve got enough depth there. We’ve just got to cover the losses,” Webb said.
