Western Force versus Kagifa Samoa
There was a real Brothers connection up at Ballymore when the Western Force took on Kagifa Samoa. Nice to see Sheldon Tarawa our premier grade captain mixing it with Clay Uyen & Brynard Stander our Brothers from the Force. The Force got the final say with a 16 point victory however I'm sure Sheldon fired a few shots of his own. Great photo of the boys after the game.
Over the past few rounds we have had some wonderful milestones achieved by a few of our players. Congratulations to Nick Sheehy and Daniel “Fredo” Redmond on playing their 100th games and making the Brothers Centurions Club. Congratulations also to Tamati Timoko on playing his 200th game for the Brothers. Outstanding achievement’s by these players which continues the growing history of our club.
Junior Match Reports
Under 13 Blue - Saturday 22 June
Very early start at Rockingham for the Blue team, kicking off at 8:50am. The Brothers start moving the ball from the start. With Ed running in a try from the wing under the sticks, stepping in for kicking duties Mitch converts. The ball moves out to the wing and back into Mitch to get the next try. Leon spins from a the back of a maul to score next. In a rare attack Rockingham get the ball brilliantly intercepted by Jacob sending Leon through the gap to score between the sticks. A well worked ball out to the wing gets stopped before the line, Ruiz picks up and dives over to score. Mitch scores and coverts a brilliant halfway try from kick off, just before half time. The second half is dominated by the forwards with Ruiz getting his second and hattrick, Caius’s gets two. With Mitch and Leon closing out the day 81-0. Man of The Match was Jordan for his work rate and tackling.
Under 13 Gold - Saturday 8 June
Joondalup Brothers faced Arks again, this time at a rainy Curtin Rugby ground.
Ravaged by injury and sickness the Brother’s recruited a couple of Swan players having their first run out for the Golds, Slayed Bonar and Liam Read. Both lads enjoyed the increased intensity and pace.
Brothers did not disappoint with a 16 try haul. Jordan runs in the first unconverted try in the corner, followed up immediately after kick off with Marcus taking a diving catch from the restart offloading the ball from ground to Ruiz who makes a half field storming run between the post, Travis stepping up to convert. Another two tries came quickly from the restarts with Mitch running in both. Both converted by Travis. Jacob sneaks in another try just before we briefly loose our shape and let in a very easy try for the Arks winger. After some stern words from the coaching set up, business is resumed with Frasier finishing off a fantastic forward movement. Ruiz grabs his second charging up the centre of the field to score between the post. Converted by Travis, which sadly turns out to be his last score of the game our Fly Half, going down with an bad injury to his ankle. Jordan crosses the line, passing the kicking duties to a Whetu who kicks his first conversion from quite a testing position.
Brothers start to run riot, every time we get the ball we score. Jordan runs in his hat trick which is converted by Mitch. We lose a rare ball at the ruck only for the opposition to lose control allowing Ed Jones to pick up and run a try into the corner. Mitch then scores three tries on the bounce first of which are converted by Frasier. Neil is next to score with a cheeky scrum half jinky run. Leon finally gets on the score sheet scoring in the corner. Wrapping up with a try from Cias . Match finishes 94-5 to Brothers with Jacob Hickey awarded Man of the match.
Under 12 Gold - Saturday 22 June
Difficult choices to made around selection leading up to Saturday, 8 players out injured from both teams, and with the added problem of playing at different venues. This meant that our Gold team would run out with only 14 guys vs Wests choosing not to borrow any players from them.
Mitch was the first to score moving the ball well, with the absence of Travis due to injury, Mitch steps in for kicking duties, unfortunately missing his first conversion. He would soon get another chance with Charlie running in his first of the game, not to be undone Ed scores on the other wing from the Kick-off putting the ball down between the posts, allowing Mitch to get his first conversion of the afternoon.
Charlie is involved again to ball doing most of the work out to the wing, good rugby is being played by the brothers, converted by Mitch.
At the point we loose Christian to a injury leaving us with 13 players and only 6 forwards. The brothers quickly regroup and the forwards finally get involved with the only back row player left on the park getting a try. Mitch Converts. Leon takes the ball from the restart and stretches his legs past the opposition to score under the post. Mitch converts just before half time.
Ruiz gets another one for the forwards rolling from a rolling maul to charge up half the pitch to get his first try of the game. Converted. Jordan playing in the unfamiliar second row gets the last try for the forwards of the day, with the boy dominating in the phase ball, he grabs a great forward try. Mitch converts his own try next and Ed get the final try under the post, but goes unconverted as the ball hits the upright.
West get a final wind and put us under pressure for 5 minutes camped on our own line, ferocious tackling and defence by the brothers hold them off until the game is called 5 minutes early because of an injury to a West player. A special mention to our forwards, who only lost one ball in scrum, with 6 forwards v 8 and 2 boys out of position, a great dominating effort. We awarded two MoM’s Franco and Ed for showing major improvements in their games.
Under 17 Blue - Saturday 8 June
This game was well anticipated by the blues as they knew that it was going to be a tough challenge, as soon as the game kicked off the intensity was extremely high and fast, both teams attacking and defending with all they strength. Then the blues managed to get the ball across the back line and to Jan on the wing who sprinted to the try line for the first try in the 13 minute, Cameron slotted a tough kick over from the left touch line, more attack and a lot more defense though from both sides and then a mirror image of the the first try in the 19 minute with Jan going over for his second. A tough kick though with Cameron just missing to the right. Kala immediately responded with a try of their own to close the gap to 12 7, on the 48 minute though a blues penalty which they wisely took the 3 points with Cameron slotting over, Kala were now attacking hard but the blues managed to hold them out for a great result of 15 7 to the brothers!
Under 17 White - Saturday 15 June
The whites were up for a challenge today playing Rockingham who were known for their physical game, the game kicked off and to be fair the whites fought hard and never let their head down, the first half had mostly forwards tries from Rocky clocking up 36 points, although as the second half kicked off you could see the fitness was falling off and fair play to the whites they continued to battle hard and defend holding Rocky off on numerous occasions. right in the last minute the whites managed to get one over much to the Rocky displeasure not leaving scoreless,
A great game to watch and a proud moment for the whites who never give up!
Under 17 Blue - Saturday 22 June
Round 7 fixtures at Rockingham, the Blues were well prepared for this game as it was sure to be a tough game having seeing Rocky paying the whites the week before, the Rocky forwards were pretty dominant but to be fair to the Blues they put their bodies on the line taking many knocks, the first try though came from the Blues with Sean going over in the corner, 5 0, this didn't last long though with Rocky getting over bringing the score back to 5 5 at half time. This was still anyone's game, well into the second half after many battles the Blues manage to squeeze over in the corner for a second, 10 5, with the clock running out the Rocky force was starting to show some cracks, the blues list of injury's was ever increasing and at one stage there was only one sub on the bench available! they held out though to take the much fought after win, final score 10 5 - well done the Blues.
