Brumbies battle bravely at Murgon DV Awareness Round

CENTRAL Burnett Brumbies travelled to Murgon at the weekend to participate in the Mustangs' Domestic Violence Awareness Round, where they played all other teams in the competition in 15-minute games.

U14 coach Mick Coulson said, although his team was beaten "convincingly” by Nanango Stags and Murgon Mustangs, they had two close games against Wondai Wolves and Kingaroy Red Ants.

However, he said his team was under-strength due to illness and injuries, and they didn't get the "little things quite right”, although he conceded Murgon and Nanango were "well-drilled” sides.

Coulson said the team started to click during the Kingaroy encounter.

He said this week the team would be working on line speed and their defence.

U12 coach coach Paul Slattery was proud of his side who came away with two draws and three losses from the round, especially as the draws came against Cherbourg Hornets and Nanango.

Slattery said his team, who are mostly 10- and 11-year-olds, were finding their feet against the older opposition.

He said they were "playing as a team” and developing their structure since stepping up from U10 level.

U10 coach Liam Harris and U6/8 coach Brett Alsaessen both said they were impressed with their teams' performances.
