Souths out to spoil Brahmans party

FRESH from their 26-12 win over second-placed Norths last weekend, the Whitsunday Brahmans A Grade side will look to record another upset when they host Souths at Les Stagg Oval this weekend.

There will be no shortage of motivation for the players on Saturday night when they try to celebrate the club's 100th anniversary with a win against the ladder-leading Mackay club.

With the first graders donning special one-off retro jerseys for the occasion, a bumper crowd is expected to come along for the game before heading to the players and supporters reunion after the game at the Metropole Hotel.

Brahmans coach captain Adam Wright stressed that his team will need to lift another level against Souths, who boast the competition's best record with 10 wins from eleven games.

"Last time we played Souths we actually led the game for 75 minutes before a late lapse cost us so we know we are good enough to beat them," Wright said.

"It's a special night for the club, all the boys will be excited about wearing the special jerseys and hopefully we can deliver a win in front of a big home crowd."

Wright spent time playing for Souths before moving to the Brahmans in 2010 and is expecting a high-intensity clash on Saturday night against his former team-mates.
