Edge-of-the-seat play from juniors

Under-8s

BROTHERS White combined for a thriller against Springsure Mountain Men in Emerald at the weekend.

Brothers’ Noah Hartley starred with three tries for the Emerald side, ably supported by his deputy Hugh O’Regan with two tries. The Brothers’ passing game found its mark, backed up by great running through the middle and a defensive effort second to none.

Kelly Murphy, David Walters and Kody Hall all topped the tackle count, with Hall named best on pitch with three points to his name.

Under-10s

BROTHERS Blue finished as strongly as they started when they faced Blackwater Crushers at McIndoe Park.

Solid early pressure on the Blackwater attack led to a fumble and great opportunistic try to Brothers’ Riley Comiskey who raced away for his first of the game. Taking the front-foot advantage, Brothers never looked back with Comiskey again in the thick of the action, this time in defence with Braydon Ross and Zach Pyle. Leighton Milburn and Trey Mitchell linked up well in attack to top their side’s hit-up count. An overall fine team performance finished off by a great length-of-the-field try to Zach Pyle.

Under-14s

BLACKWATER Crushers are forging a tough reputation in the Central Highlands under-14 competition, with a stirring 56-10 victory over Emerald Brothers Blue on Saturday. Crushers held a dominant 24-6 lead at the break, before continuing their onslaught into the second half.
