Junior Brahmans kick start season at home

CROWDS turned out in droves to support the Proserpine Whitsunday Junior Rugby League teams at their first home games of the season.

The Proserpine junior sporting complex was packed and was once again back in fine form with new facilities and plenty of keen rugby league players and supporters.

The Under-15 team ended the day with a win against the Wests with a score of 22 - 14.

Brahmans Under-13s defeated Wests with a dominating the scoreboard 20 - 6.

The Under-14 team recorded a loss to the Wests with a final match score of 12 - 20.

The Under-16 Brahmans were defeated by Brothers with a final score of 10 - 36.

Brahmans Under-17s lost against Brothers with a match score of 14 - 36.

The little tacklers in the Under-7 to Under-12 teams don't score, but secretary of the club Leanne Hoffmann said their games were played in great spirit.

Tonight is the senior boys turn with reserves warming up the field at 5pm, before the A-Grade team look to defend their title when they take on the Mackay West Tigers in a grand final re-match at 7pm.

The Brahmans junior teams will play away next week, with those teams who fell short now hungrier for a win and those who defeated their opponents looking to keep the winning streak alive.
