Communication is key to victory for Maryborough Brothers

COMMUNICATION is the key if Maryborough Brothers are to enjoy success.

The Ann St club will open their campaign in the first official Bundaberg Rugby League of 2016 when they face Isis Devils on Saturday, and coach Peter Green was confident his side had what it takes to match the best.

All they have to do, according to Green, is replicate the second half performance they displayed in their 30-22 trial loss to Gympie Devils.

"We need more talk and communication," he said.

"If we keep it up for the whole game I'm sure we'll do well.

"That first half was slow. It's the first time a lot of the boys have played together so it did take some time to gel.

"By the second half they were great. They played well as a team and looked good."

Brothers' mission is made slightly more difficult given they play whichever club has a bye in the top grade, which opens the possibility they will face A-grade players.

It is a situation the club has faced in previous years, and while it is not ideal for Brothers they have managed to enjoy successful seasons.

Green was not worried.

"We don't mind, we end up playing A-grade players anyway," he said.

"We play to win. We know it will be tough but the boys are keen for a good shot."

Kickoff at noon.
