BROTHERS sent a finals warning to Swifts for the second straight week with another convincing win on the weekend.
This time they smashed Goodna by 72 – 20. Coach Wayne Barnett was happy with the performance but knows that they will need to step up a notch to match the undefeated Swifts Bluebirds in this weekend’s semi-final.
“We got through our completions well in the first half, but just played some undisciplined football at stages,” Barnett said.
“I told the boys to settle down in the second half and work them around and they would tire and that’s exactly what happened.”
Coach Barnett praised his side, especially the younger players who have stepped up and debuted in a tough year through injuries and suspensions.
The good news for Brothers is that they expect to be at full strength for the big clash with Swifts.
In other league news only one A Grade game was played last weekend because of crowd violence that erupted at a recent game between the Norths Tigers and Redbank Bears.
RLI and the QRL are investigating the incident and have stood down both clubs until a full report is received back from witnesses and club officials.
