RUGBY LEAGUE

THE Whitsunday Brahmans reserve grade team are into the grand final this weekend against Mackay Brothers after convincingly beating Souths 44-8.

The opening 10 minutes of the game saw most of the possession going to the Mackay team and after withstanding most of what Souths were throwing at them, the Brahmans finally cracked and allowed their opponents to score out wide.

Staying positive and composed, from this point on the Brahmans took control of the game.

Sticking to their simple game plan, the Brahmans reaped the benefits of running the pill on the fifth tackle seeing winger Zac Hoffman find himself in space and score under the posts.

With Josh ‘JL' Large converting the try, the Brahmans took the lead and really didn't look back.

Over the next fifteen minutes Zac Hoffman was again among the tries and Michael Newman also crossed the white paint, which saw the Brahmans enter the half-time break 16- 4.

Knowing that only 40 more minutes of football stood in the way of a grand final, the Brahmans reserves came out in the second half and tries to Josh Large, Gav Noonan, Joel Toohey and a third to Zac Hoffman proved that not only would the Brahmans be making one last trip down to Mackay this year, but the blow-out score line shows that they are a force to be reckoned with.

For supporters wishing to travel down to Mackay on Sunday, a bus will be leaving the Reef Gateway Hotel and Hotel Metropole at approximately 11 am.

The bus will cost $10 and will be a great way to show support for the local team as they try for only the second reserve grade premiership in the club's history.
