Brahmans ready for Souths
Poor discipline lets down the Brahmans on Sunday
RUGBY LEAGUE: A lack of discipline cost the Whitsunday Brahmans victory against the Mackay Brothers on Sunday.
Despite drawing level 12-12 at half-time, Brothers ran away with the win after a number of Brahmans errors resulted in a 28-12 loss.
Brahmans manager Bryce Fraser said there were a number of factors going against the side.
“There were a lot of handling errors through the second half that allowed the Brothers to get good field position and score points on us,” he said.
“We were hampered by injury through the first half and we lost our two wingers.
“(But) that’s not really an excuse for the result, it was poor execution when we were in scoring zones.”
Brahman’s captain/coach Phil Ramage will be away this weekend after being selected to represent North Queensland.
Sunday’s result sees the Brahmans third on the Mackay ladder.
The Brahmans Reserves suffered a heavy loss as they went down 40-12 against Brothers after trailing 16-8 at half-time, while the Under-19s kept top spot on the ladder after a dominant 36-18 over Brothers to make it three wins from three starts to the season.
The Brahmans take on Souths at Les Stagg Oval on Saturday with the U19s at 3.30pm, the Reserves at 5pm and the A grade at 7pm.
PASS: Brahmans player Sam Kelly was one of the standout players against the Brothers in Mackay on the weekend.
