Seagulls cut down by Brothers

THERE was no happy homecoming for the Hervey Bay Seagulls in front of their own fans at Torquay's Stafford Park yesterday.

Bundaberg Brothers made sure of that in round four of the Bundaberg Rugby League A-Grade competition.

Seagulls' first home game of the season ended in defeat after the high-flying Brothers led from start to finish, winning 36-12.

The visitors took full advantage of a Seagulls line-up missing four regulars and they powered their way into the half-time break leading 26-0.

Things didn't improve for the home team in the second-half either as the premiership favourites continued to stamp their authority on the game.

Victor Davis scored the tries for Seagulls.

Captain Clinton Horne kicked the extras.

The defeat means Seagulls have won just once this season.

Seagulls coach Damian Lindeberg admitted it had been a tough day at the office.

“It was always going to be tough with so many regulars out,” Lindeberg, who took over the coaching duties this season, said.

“Brothers are a quality unit.

“Saying that, we showed plenty of heart in the second-half.”
