Kingaroy rope in Brumbies

MISSING players to Wide Bay trials and country shows didn't stop Kingaroy Red Ants, who proved the better team against Central Burnett Brumbies.

With both under-12 teams short of their usual numbers, the Red Ants knew they had to make an early mark.

Red Ants coach Nathan Dean said his team led from the back, rather than the front, in their 26-10 win.

"There was a lot of hard defence and some good tackles for a change," he said.

The backline stepped up from the previous round, which allowed the Red Ant forwards to build on a strong start to the season.

"They wanted to keep on their winning streak after winning the first two games of the season, and after a really good pre-season," Dean said.
