Brothers are fishing for fans

BROTHERS reserves have a chance this weekend to take out the big one – the grand final.

The team, however, needs as much support on the sidelines as the Fish can muster on Saturday.

Being the only Brothers side left in the Challenge Cup competition, the reserves plan to operate a bus to the final – and they are keeping their fingers crossed that there will be plenty of interest.

The bus will leave at midday in time for the match to be played at 2.30pm.

Brothers’ president Paul Smith said the club had made and won finals in all local grades, but the reserves progressing to the Challenge Cup grand final had been a remarkable result, and one all of the coaches and players should be very proud of.“It’s been a few years since this has occurred for the club,” Smith said.

Fish reserves take on CQU Norths in the grand final, a team they’ve knocked off once this year, the ledger standing at a win apiece.

The Brothers’ senior committee thanked all players, supporters and sponsors for helping the team get to this stage of the season, and the wonderful results achieved in the 2010 year.

The club will hold its presentation dinner on September 17 at the Grand Hotel and those attending need to contact the club by next Wednesday.

Anyone wanting to book for the bus or the presentation dinner can contact Paul Smith on 4978 1551 or Matt Jones on 04 3448 9659.
