Young Brahmans prove their worth
JACK Wright believes the Young Brahmans of 2010 show a lot of potential and the side did not let him down on Saturday easing to a 24-7 win at Blackwater.
Running out for the first time in a season is tough as players attempt to get used to others style of play but Wright was happy with the way his youngsters performed against a surprisingly strong Blackwater Presidents XV.
“We were wrapped at the way they went,” Wright enthused.
“The boys got better as the game went on and by the fourth quarter we were putting our phases together.”
There is always room for improvement before the Young Brahmans get into the main part of the representative program in their section of the Country Championship.
Wright said he was happy with all his players but there were a number of the squad who stood out.
The coach was pleased with the work done by his second rower/ flanker Isaac Holmes and also by what Cameron Lindley achieved.
Playmaker Duane House put a scare in the camp when he was forced from the field with an ankle injury.
House was another team member who impressed and relieved a coach said the injury is will only keep the youngster out of the side for this weekend’s run.
The Young Brahmans victory was by a conclusive four tries to one.
Two of those tries went to Rockhampton Grammar’s Lachlan James while a further two went to Matthew Brown and Levi Thompson.
This weekend the Young Brahmans are in action again but Wright is not too sure in what format.
He said he would like to have a run for a couple of quarters against a Brahmans team but has yet to discuss it with senior coach Jack Lloyd junior.
On February 6 the senior Brahmans have their first major test when they play the annual charity match against a Presidents XV.
Wright said on that day he hoped to arrange a game for his team as a curtain-raiser.
The coach said there were a couple of possibilities and the opposition could be the Colts under-19 team that won the age-group tournament late last year or a Dawson Valley Drovers team.
