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.
