Cricket score win

RUGBY LEAGUE: You could've mistaken the Mine Wealth and Wellbeing A-grade Cup for the Ashes on Sunday, as the Whitsunday Brahmans chalked up a cricket score against the lowly Norths Devils.

The Brahmans ran out stunning 116-0 winners on the weekend, moving to third on the ladder in the process.

Remarkably, Byron Taylor - who played for both the reserve and A-grade teams - Isaac Richardson and Kieran Anderson each scored four tries, while Jack Briscoe finished with a hat-trick in the club record win.

"They weren't the same side that played us at home," coach James Webb commented.

"Our support play was good and everyone was pushing to support each other.

"We went through their middle and then pushed through on the outside for the chip-in balls."

What made the pulverising victory even more impressive was the fact Whitsunday was missing star players Phil Ramage, Grant Cooke, Ivan Petelo and Rohan Ahearn.

Anderson, who stepped up in the absence of Ramage, finished the game with a haul of 46-points.

This weekend all three Brahmans' teams will host Moranbah at Les Stagg Oval on Saturday.

The under-18s will kick-off at 3.30pm while the reserves will follow at 5pm.

The A-grade match will start at 7pm.
