Brothers celebrate

DISCIPLINE was the order of the day for the premiership-winning Emerald Brothers Under-16 side in Springsure at the weekend.

Brothers took out a dominant 46-20 victory over Middlemount Panthers in the Central Highlands Under-16 grand final.

The Emerald outfit held all the cards, both in gameplay and bums on the bench, with the final result confirmation of a season played to its fullest.

The side’s grand final-winning coach Ace Edwards found it hard to fault such a star-studded side.

“As coach I am very proud of the team,” he said.

“Every individual did what was asked and the team was very disciplined for their final game.”

He said their strong playing depth helped their cause, with weather heating up considerably during the course of the final.

“Middlemount fought very hard with the numbers of players they had, however the Brothers team was able to rotate and remain fresh in the hot conditions.”

Charlie Mayne could hardly put a foot wrong in the most crucial game of the season, named as the Under-16 player of the final.
