Bulls buck the Crocs
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.
