Brahmans clean up the Miners on Saturday night

RUGBY LEAGUE: The Whitsunday Brahmans took out their third win in a row by making a meal of the Moranbah Miners.

The A-grade side dominated Saturday's match from the outset scoring three tries in the first 20 minutes and keeping the Miners scoreless for the match duration.

By full-time in driving rain, the Brahmans managed to put on 24 unanswered points, of which 20 were scored in the first half.

The wet conditions proved tough in the ball control department for both sides. Brahmans Manager Bryce Fraser described the match as "very stop/start".

Injuries and errors contributed to the pace of the game.

Stand out players were Darcy and Adam Wright.

The reserve grade team also sent the Miners home with a lot to think about - the Brahmans total domination was reflected by the 54-0 score line.

The slippery conditions meant for a simple game plan, which the Brahmans stuck to from the get-go. After building some pressure, Back Rower Ben Castley found himself on the end of a nice bomb to score his first of three tries for the game. Man of the Match went to centre George Prior.

The convincing win by the under-18 side meant a clean sweep for the Whitsunday Brahmans in round 13.

The young Brahmans started well against the Miners with a high completion rate. Difficulty controlling the ball saw the boys only six in front at the break but they stormed home in the second half to take the match comfortably, 30-6.

Next week the Brahmans take on Norths in Mackay.
