Brothers Blue on way up

EMERALD Brothers Blue converted excellent ball movement into points to win 22-12 over Dysart Bulls in Emerald at the weekend.

The tries came thick and fast early in the first half with a try each to Dylan Johnson and Will Kleinschafer.

As the home side tired, Dysart was let back into the game with a soft try moments before the break.

Renewed energy in the second half saw Emerald run in another two tries - one to Tristan Browne and a second for the day to Dylan Johnson.

The boys tired again and allowed Dysart to score another two tries late in the second half. There was excellent defensive work from Blake Pyle, who again topped the tackle count, while Dylan Johnson and Blake Edwards allowed the team to hold on to a hard-fought victory.

Tackle of the day was pulled off by Jackson Millwood who is continuing to improve with every minute played.

Acting Brothers Blue coach Stephen Pyle spoke encouragingly about Millwood’s hardened edge.

“It’s been a year-long project to get young Jackson going but he’s getting better week to week and his tackle on the weekend just goes to prove that,” he said.

“All the practice put in throughout the year is really starting to show - the boys are using their brains and getting good results.

“I told them to stick to the pattern and look for gaps and opportunities in their opposition’s defence and the rest will follow.”
