Haynes steers Brothers to grand final win

ROCKHAMPTON Brothers young gun Tyron Haynes celebrated his Australian Junior Kangaroos under-19 selection with a powerhouse display at Browne Park on Saturday.

Haynes, selected in the national squad on Friday to play Papua New Guinea and New Zealand A next month, led a 12man Brothers outfit to a 46-20 victory against Yeppoon in the CQ Extended League under-19 grand final.

In a spiteful encounter, Haynes was outstanding after moving from lock to five-eighth following an injury to playmaker Ben Matheson, who missed the decider after hurting his ankle playing in the national under-18 touch football titles at Coffs Harbour. Brothers fullback Peter Stanley was equally impressive, producing one of the best kicking displays seen at Browne Park.

Stanley even put his dad, Brothers A-grade maestro Hughie, to shame, nailing four precision 40x20 kicks, kicking five goals and scoring a hattrick of tries that ultimately turned the match.

Both teams clashed in the 50th minute and when tempers cooled Brothers second-rower Mitchell Flanaghan was sent off. But for Yeppoon the damage was already done.
