Jack happy with Brahmans’ run
THE Brahmans season got under way on Saturday at Rugby Park with coach Jack Lloyd happy with what he saw.
“The first one always hurts,” he said.
Up until Saturday, all the pre-season work for the Brahmans had been in the gymnasium but from this point onwards the workload increases.
“We will have four sessions a week, two in the gym and two field, until Christmas,” Lloyd said.
From Christmas the coach expects to add a further field session.
The State Cup has been canned but the Brahmans’ objectives have changed little.
“While before we wanted to be competitive against the Brisbane teams our goal is to take out the Country Championship,” he said.
“We are sticking to our plan of being as competitive as possible.”
Lloyd said the Saturday morning session was reasonably well attended although some players were unable to front up due to prior commitments.
Before the start of the Country Championship, Lloyd hopes to have at least three trial matches.
“We’d like to play one at Blackwater against the Central Highlands,” he said.
“There are likely to be a few players from Blackwater in the Brahmans squad.”
