Brothers bounce back with strong win over Wests

LEAGUE: When Brothers get their attack together the way they want it, they will be a scary proposition for the Bundaberg Rugby League.

The side maintained its top two position in the A-Grade competition with a 36-16 win over Western Suburbs on Sunday.

But despite the high score the side wasn't particularly pleased with everything in attack.

"We've still got a lot of work to do,” Brothers captain Kevin Sherriff said.

"Making sure we complete our sets is one of the key things at the moment.”

The side though was positive about winning again and bouncing back with its attitude after losing to Easts last week.

"I feel the attitude was there defensively,” Sherriff said.

"I thought in the middle it was a bit tighter (as well).”

The Western Suburbs said it was tough to stop a rampant Brothers outfit without their best players.

"I don't think we lacked effort but our one on one tackles need improvement,” Wests captain James Prichard said.

"I think they made easy metres and us dropping the ball in our own half didn't help.”

Prichard said the side is now hoping its main squad can come back in the next two to three weeks.

In the other match for round 10, Maryborough Brothers won their first match of the season with a 40-32 win over Isis.

SCORES:

Past Brothers 36 (R Olive 2, T Priestley, A Hall, C Saunders, S Robinson) def Wests 16 (T Payne, J Prichard)

Maryborough Brothers 40 (J Brown, K McKenna, T Murray, L Willmot, J Gauld, J Davidson, T Blake) def Isis 32 (J Alberts 3, R Blair, D Zelinski, B Hardy)
