Brothers take opportunities to beat Cap Coast Crocs
RUGBY UNION: Brothers took the points in what captain Lee Anderson described as a "scrappy” contest against the Cap Coast Crocs on Saturday.
"It was a good win but a very scrappy game but those are the ones you want to win, they help you at the end of the year to get your for and against up,” he said after the 25-10 victory.
"The defence from both sides was very good and it was forcing a lot of errors so we just had to adjust to the type of game that was being played and pick away and take our opportunities when they presented themselves.”
Anderson praised fullback Angus Campbell, as well as the team's front row which stood up under a heavy workload.
Dropped ball was an issue though and something the skipper said would need to be addressed at training this week.
Brothers' depth has been tested in the opening rounds with a large contingent of its players, including Anderson, involved in another successful rep campaign with the CQ Brahmans, who went through unbeaten in the CQ Regional Championships.
A number of them are now vying for selection in the Central Queensland team to play at the 2017 Queensland Country Championships in Bundaberg in early June.
"That's going to take a lot of our boys out again for representative duties but the more guys you have from your club playing rep the better off you are,” Anderson said.
"They bring that experience and confidence from rep footy back to the club and we'll definitely benefit from that.”
