Brothers charge through Norths with 38 point win

DESPITE his side's confident start to the season, Rockhampton Brothers A-grade coach Damien Seibold believes his side has plenty of improvement left in the locker room.

Brothers were defensively rock solid in their 38-0 defeat of Norths Chargers, with Seibold beginning his tenure at the club in the best way possible.

"I was really happy with us defensively; our aggression was really good all over the park and on our goal-line in particular," Seibold said.

"I was a bit disappointed that we bombed a few tries in the second half. That just means we have plenty of improvement left in us.

"The stuff we have been doing at training, concentrate on defence, be nice and solid through the middle and control the ruck is going well."

Seibold is no stranger to the coaching ranks, having mentored a number of junior teams in the past and spent two years as the Capras assistant coach under Jason Hetherington before taking up the reigns at Brothers.

He described his coaching style as a simple one.

"I have spent a long time coaching and just try to make sure all my players understand what is required of them," he said.

"So they understand their specific role and the best way to help the team. No grey areas."

He said he was blessed to have a number of players vying for higher honours and applauded the way they started the year.

"Mark Johnstone was good for us back from the Capras," he said.

"Also Liam Law was very strong, Lachlan Cambell and Pat Matulino were also great on the weekend.

"Mark, Liam Pickersgill and Aiden Cooper are all part of the Capras.

"And it really shows.

"Big Justin Daniels certainly would not look out of place playing at a higher level as well. He is great in defence.

"And Liam (Law) has the ability to take his game to the next level."
