Brothers Kangaroos getting better
IT'S not every day that you're pleased with a 10-goal defeat, but Brothers Kangaroos coach Don Pollock is just that.
The high-flying BITS Saints outfit continued their unbeaten run to start the season with a 17.13 (115) to 8.12 (60) win over Pollock's 'Roos in Saturday's Trend Interiors AFL Capricornia grand final rematch.
But premiership-winning coach Pollock is still pleased with how his side is improving as the season wears on and realises there's still 15 rounds of competition remaining. Pollock was pleased with the performance after his side achieved a number of goals set for them going into the round five fixture.
“I'm not disappointed with our performance. We'd set some goals to accomplish this weekend and we did that, so that was pleasing,” he said.
Pollock said he wanted his side to work on the smaller elements that make up the big picture during the early stages of the season.
“(It was) just things like getting more hard ball gets, more one-per cent plays, blokes looking after teammates, and competing for the ball,” he said.
“Just working hard for each other and doing the things that help a teammate out.
“Running the lines and going hard at it.
“It was a big improvement on previous weeks.”
Pollock was pleased with defender Tom Granleese's work in restricting BITS goal scoring machine John Beirouti to five goals, considering “The Animal” was averaging 12.25 goals per match.
“To keep Beirouti's (goal-scoring) down to five goals was a good effort.”
Meanwhile, Yeppoon Swans overcome an early six goal deficit to win by 13.7 (84) to 10.17 (77) in their clash with Glenmore Bulls at Stenlake Park on Saturday. Glenmore dominated the match into the second quarter before the Swans fought back to go into the half-time break two points behind.
The Bulls maintained their lead into the final quarter, before Yeppoon kicked 5.1 to 1.4 in the final quarter to take the win.
