Juniors rip into round 15
BROTHERS White played Emerald Tigers at McIndoe Park at the weekend.
It was a very tough game and Tigers played really well. The side is looking to improve on its defence to combat strong running teams but their attack continues to improve week by week, keeping them in the games.
All tries were a whole team effort with several passes involved in each movement.
Try scorers for the day were Hugh O’Regan, Koby Hall and Cody Williamson, with Hugh and Oscar Maher successfully converting goal attempts.
BROTHERS Blue played against a very strong Dysart team.
A try-saving tackle by Bayley Lewin was a standout and his steamrolling hit-ups were again hard to stop.
Darcy Ramsey once again proved dangerous scoring three tries and pulling off 23 tackles.
Other try scorers for the day were Lewin, Hugh Ross, Noah Hartley and Cooper Harney. Lachlan Verzeletti came from the under-6s to help out and managed to be the second highest on the tackle count.
BROTHERS White played a well-drilled Tigers outfit.
Below their usual standard in the first 30 minutes, uncharacteristic mistakes from some of Brothers’ leading players hurt at times and it was only their good attitude in defence that saved them.
A very strong finish to the game underlined Brothers’ potential and the lessons they learned on the day will be remembered.
Once again John Finau was strong and powerful through the middle of the ruck and was well supported by Chaise Tisdell.
Tommy Lewis worked tirelessly in defence, well supported by Chaise who rounded out his game also scoring a try along with Harry Wills.
Full-time score was 18-12 in favour of Tigers.
PEAK Downs Pirates defeated Blackwater Crushers 52-6 in Blackwater.
CLERMONT Bears defeated Gemfields Giants 52-0 in Clermont.
SPRINGSURE Mountain Men defeated Middlemount Panthers 58-0 in Springsure.
BLACKWATER Crushers defeated Peak Downs Pirates 46-0 in Blackwater.
Lachlan Reid dominated the forward pack for the Crushers with 16 tackles and 11 hit-ups.
Nick Hamilton was strong off the bench while Riley McLay had a great game at fullback.
Toby Brennan was strong in defence and attack on the wing, and Harrison Beath lifted the home side when he came on to play at front row.
Try scorers were Josh Salisbury, Rhys Martin, Lachlan Reid, Nick Hamilton and Kyle Glover with one apiece, and Ari Hannah scored two.
Rhys Martin kicked two conversions and Peter Harrison kicked three from five.
The second-placed Blackwater Crushers are quietly confident but know they will need every ounce of courage and luck against competition leaders Middlemount this weekend.

BROTHERS Blue defeated Dysart 58-0 in Emerald.

He was well supported by Jack Johnson, Adam Kelly, Brady Mayne, Dan Russell and Junior.
All players were commended on their efforts and discipline displayed throughout the game.
Try scorers were Jack Johnson (3), Adam Kelly (3), Charlie Mayne (2), with Jacob Price, Brent Kelly and Jack Edwards scoring one each.
