The Binalong Brahmans have suffered their worst defeat since 2016 after a rampaging Coota Bulldogs came out with plenty of bite in the second stanza of the clash, held at Binalong on Saturday, April 23.

The Brahmans were missing a few key players from their squad, however, they proved they had enough competitiveness in them, to go into the break trailing 8-6. No less than 4 players were missing with a number of them representing the Australian Defence Force against Turkey, a match the Australians won. Other players were unavailable due to Covid.

The Brahmans put on a good defensive display in the first half before the Bulldogs busted them open and ran away with the match.

Brahman’s President Ben Spencer said, “We had six on the bench but we just ran out of puff in the second half.”

The Bulldogs piled on 40 points to 0 in the second half to make it 48-6 when the final whistle blew.

The Jersey Girls came up against a very youthful and speedy Bullettes outfit and went down 42 points to nil.
