RUGBY LEAGUE: The Whit­sun­day Brah­mans went into the sec­ond half of their game against the Sa­rina Crocodiles on Satur­day de­ter­mined to not let them get away with a sin­gle try – and they suc­ceeded.

End­ing with a 60–12 vic­tory, the Brah­mans will go into their next home game against Mackay Mag­pies full of con­fi­dence.

Brah­mans man­ager Bryce Fraser said they didn’t give any­thing away.

“In the sec­ond half we went out with a mis­sion to not let them score any tries whilst still adding points our­selves,” he said.

A-grade cap­tain Phil Ra­m­age re­turned to the side on Satur­day and said he was proud of the de­ter­mi­na­tion of the en­tire team.

“There was a mo­ment in the game around the 79th minute we were up 60–12 and a ball got kicked through into the goal and Michael New­man chased it and put his body on the line and dived and hit the ball dead,” he said.

“He saved a try and that ef­fort shows how much we wanted to keep them score­less, we could have eas­ily let them score and not got in­jured but it showed as a team we re­ally wanted to keep them score­less.”

The Brah­mans Re­serve grade also had a win in their game against Sa­rina 34-22 while the U-19 side dom­i­nated in a a 44-4 vic­tory.
