Round 3 (Rescheduled) – 6th July 2013
Brothers 7 Petersham 10
The much awaited top of the table clash against Petersham played out last Saturday at home.
Fair to say, Petersham came prepared to play and took it to us from the outset.
They continuously turned Brothers around through a good kick and chase which resulted in Brothers defending and playing in their own half for most of the match.
It was a tough forwards affair and Brothers matched up well however were not able to get on top as they have in previous games.
There was limited opportunity for the backs and despite a try to Rainsie and one to them it was, put simply a hard day at the office.
Brothers will be all the better for the loss however congratulations to Petersham on toughing out a big win for them.
We get another crack at Petersham next Sunday and no doubt the word ,Revenge, will be ringing loud in our boys ears.
Round 11 – 22nd June 2013
Brothers : 29 Newport : 18
A Pretty tough day at the office for Brothers who had to slug it out with an enthusiastic Newport side at home.
A fairly tight affair for most of the match in what was seen as a good preparation for the next couple of weeks against Petersham.
Newport held nothing back in taking it up to Brothers however our defence held strong and whilst conceding a couple of tries, it could have been worse if it wasn’t for the commitment of the forwards which proved to be the difference.
Brothers scored 5 tries in all with Joel the magician scoring a double.
Buckets and Matty Mac were strong all day and were both rewarded with a meat pie each with Vinnie scoring as well.
All in all a very good result and a tough game of rugby which Brothers will be all the better for.
Round 10 – 15th June 2013
Brothers : 79 Kings : 0
A monster performance by Brothers against Kings Old Boys at home.
The game started fairly evenly with Kings putting up a spirited performance.
Midway through the first half Brothers forwards started to dominate the rucks and through constant go forward and with the sheer weight of possession, Brothers soon had Kings on the back foot.
This resulted in a number of tries leading into the break.
Brothers commenced the second stanza where they had left off and Kings could do very little to stop the unrelenting forward raids and slick backline moves.
Joel and Jone provided much of the second half entertainment scoring 4 and 3 respectively and Brothers nailing 13 tries in all with other meat pies to Charlie, Buckets Vinny, Hugh and Borgie.
Points went 3,2,1 to Joel, Matty Mac and Jone and the Ref giving his points to Jone, Si and Buckets.
