ALL grades of the Hervey Bay Bombers have enjoyed comfortable wins in the weekend's Aussie Rules matches.

In their match against Brothers Bulldogs, the seniors scored a 97 to 40 win over their Bundaberg competitors.

It was a disciplined performance from the Bay as it attempts to return to the top of the competition following last year's disappointing result.

Making it two wins from the first two matches, Bombers president Roger Wagner was happy with the seniors' results.

"I was very impressed - they played really well on the weekend," he said.

"There was a lot of running in all four quarters and they all put their hand up.

"There is always room for improvement but it was a good win."

The young Bombers are learning each other's technique and beginning to gel.

Brothers Bulldogs coach Brad Grogan said it was "through our mistakes" the club lost.

"We made fundamental skill errors," he said.

"We had good possession but they rebounded well from our turnovers.

 

"We were in the contest and the scoreboard didn't reflect how well we played."

 

Grogan said the side spent eight weeks in the gym focusing on leg running.

"We are playing reasonable football and we know we are going to get better," he said.

"We're disappointed, not devastated."

The Bombers' senior win capped off a solid weekend for the Hervey Bay club with Wagner reporting a positive turnout and results.

"We're seeing some good numbers right across the board," he said.

In the reserve grade, the Bombers handed Brothers Bulldogs a 51 to 1 loss.

Also in reserve grade, the Maryborough Bears chalked up a 34 to 51 loss against Across the Waves Bundaberg.

Bulldogs play Gympie this weekend in Gympie while the Bombers will take on Across the Waves.
