Glebe prove too good for Brothers

Glebe Dirty Reds have opened Licensed Clubs Round today with a dominant 40-14 win over Penrith Brothers at St Marys Leagues Stadium today.

The halves combination of Joseph Whitikama Temara Taipari and Adam Fernley proved to be the difference for Glebe, with Brothers unable to contain both playmakers.

The Dirty Reds came out of the blocks firing in the first half, scoring five unanswered tries to head into the break with a 30-0 lead.

Glebe wasted no time in opening the scoring, after Fernley regathered his own bomb to score right of the posts (6-0).

Holding the momentum for majority of the first half, Glebe went on to score back-to-back tries in the 11th and 17th minute, with both orchestrated by the halves (18-0).

Handling errors from Glebe helped Brothers receive some much-needed ball close to their line, however they were unable to crack the strong defence of the Dirty Reds.

The Dirty Reds finished the opening 40 minutes with another 12 points through four pointers to Lleyton Finau and Temesia Jilivecevece, while Taipari has a perfect first half off the tee by successfully converting all five tries.

Glebe started the second half how they finished the first, continuing to test Brothers defence with their off-the-cuff attack.

The Dirty Reds again wasted no time adding more points to their impressive lead. Winger Alex Young took an intercept pass before racing down the field to score. Taipari missed his first conversion of the match to leave the score at 34-0.

Glebe added another six points to the score board through forward Charles Vaka who broke through the defence to score next to the posts (40-0).

Brothers scored their first try of the match in the 60th minutes through centre Baley Borthwick who crossed in the corner (40-4).

With 10 minutes remaining, Brothers went back-to-back scoring two tries before full-time through forwards Ryan Eisenhuth and Maurice Trindall to bring the score to 40-14.
