It's all in Brothers' head

LEAGUE: There will be one interested onlooker tomorrow when Past Brothers face Wests at Salter Oval in the Bundaberg Rugby League A-Grade.

Brothers coach Brent Kuskey will be on the sidelines, serving the first game of a two game suspension after being sent off against Easts last week in their loss.

And Kuskey is hoping to see the side learn the lessons from the loss when he coaches them from the sideline.

"We were very ordinary last week, we weren't happy," Kuskey revealed.

"It was down to the boys and their attitude, they showed up expecting to win.

"It was one of those days but we didn't deserve to win."

Now Kuskey is hoping to see the side respond this week.

"I'm disappointed not to be out there this weekend but I'll be interested to see them play," he said.

"We need to complete the one percenters and grind it out.

"We also need to control the ball better after it wasn't good enough last week."

And against Wests the side will find out if they learnt anything this week.

"They are the perfect side to test our attitude as they never give up," Kuskey said.

"They are gutsy and fight all the way through a contest.

"We're confident though if we play well enough we can win."

The match between Brothers and Wests will be held at 3pm tomorrow, after Isis play Maryborough Brothers at 1.20pm.

In a battle between the bottom two sides, the Devils will be looking to keep their finals hopes alive with a third win for the season.

The A-Grade round kicks off later today with the Wallaroos looking for their fourth straight win over Easts at Stafford Park at 4.20pm.

That will be followed by Hervey Bay taking on The Waves in the second grand final replay at 6pm.
