Sa­rina Crocs snap Brah­mans in trial

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

RUGBY LEAGUE: The Whit­sun­day Brah­mans put weeks of turbulence be­hind them to play in Mackay on Sun­day.

They played a strong Sa­rina out­fit in what was their sec­ond hitout of the year but the Croc­o­diles ran away 30-24 win­ners.

Brah­mans coach Phil Ramage said their ex­e­cu­tion let them down.

It also didn’t help not be­ing able to train for the past two weeks straight.

“That was the first proper hitout since... the cy­clone,” he said.

“We had a good pre-sea­son and then that lit­tle block where we couldn’t do any­thing re­ally.”

It wouldn’t take long to get back up to match fit­ness again, he said.

“We’ll put our heads down and get back into our fit­ness, ready for round one,” Ramage said.

The trial match was also a good op­por­tu­nity for the U19s to play in the A-grade side, who Ramage said were tested by the “big boys in Sa­rina”.

“It’s only go­ing to ben­e­fit the whole club in the long run. They’re the fu­ture of any club which can only sur­vive if you have those ju­niors push­ing through.”
