Moranbah too much for Brahmans

RUGBY LEAGUE

A GRADE

THE Proserpine Brahmans fought hard during their away match against Moranbah last weekend but the Miners were too good on the night running out comfortable winners, 44-8.

With injuries to captain Adam Wright and several other key players, travelling to Moranbah to take on the defending premiers was never going to be an easy task.

Front-rowers Tim Webb and Jason Pack were outstanding for the Brahmans, playing hard for all 80 minutes and never letting any traffic down the middle of the ground.

Dean Connell also got through a mountain of work at fullback and saved plenty of tries thanks to his hard work on defence.

The Miners boasted a far more experienced team and simply outclassed the visiting Brahmans who had five players making their first grade debuts.

RESERVES

A severe player shortage for the reserves saw them field a very inexperienced side during their 74-4 loss to the Moranbah reserves.

Coach Paul Maxwell said his team were outplayed by a better team and was just impressed that the team found enough players so they didn't have to forfeit.

"It was a very makeshift team on the night, a lot of the guys hadn't ever played together before but a big thanks to everyone who showed up ready to play. Numbers will be better for our home game this weekend and everyone will be working hard at training this week," Maxwell said.

UNDER 18

By far the best Brahmans performance of the night was the under 18s, who narrowly lost out to Moranbah 26-24.

The Brahmans got off to a great start and put two quick tries on the board to hold an early 12-0 lead.

After such a great start the youngsters slipped defensively and let the Miners back into the game.

After surrendering their lead the boys worked hard to regain the advantage and both teams played some exciting rugby league.

The boys fought hard to keep it close but fell just short in the end and now have a win and a loss after the first two rounds of the competition.

All four grades, including women's will be on at Les Stagg Oval this weekend with the first game featuring the Lady Brahmans taking on Brothers at 10am, under 18s at 11.30am, Reserve Grade at 1pm and A Grade at 3pm.
