High Flying Brothers Tame Tigers At Leprechaun Park

All conquering Mackay Brothers are setting a cracking pace in the 2024 NQBE Mackay Junior League A Grade competition.

The runaway leaders demonstrated their power and class last Saturday by trouncing Wests Tigers 30-0 at Leprechaun Park to preserve their unbeaten status.

It was the Brothers’ sixth successive victory of the season and keeps them four points clear of rivals Mackay Magpies on 12 competition points.

Tom Heggie’s well drilled charges proved too strong for the Tigers with Australian Universities utility back Kane Simon posting a try double and fullback Walter Lauenstein, centre Jayden Batchelor and half back Brad Campbell nabbing four pointers and centre Rydge Smith booting five goals.

In other fixtures the Moranbah Miners slammed Carltons Devils 64-0 in a twelve try rout at the Mackay Junior League Fields.

Talented fullback Nat Hinchliffe capped a slick performance with a try double.

Moranbah wingers Dylan Womal and Hayden Bell, interchange Clint Broomham, utility ace Ethan Roberts, lock forward Remus Phineasa, second rower Cooper Hannay and centre Mark Rosendale also crossed for tries in a dominant display.
Souths Sharks ran in eight tries to outclass Whitsunday Brahmans 40-10 at Les Stagg Oval while Mackay Magpies and Sarina Crocodiles fought out an 18-all draw at Sologinkin Oval.
