Brothers have named a strong squad to tackle the West Wyalong Knockout next weekend including new recruits Peter Little, Patrick Sagigi, Will Merritt and Connor McCauley. While Little is no stranger to Brothers having previously played 40 first grade games, Sagigi, Merritt and McCauley will pull on the Brothers colours for the first time.
Brothers also welcome back talented junior Ed Ansell who has returned home after a season with Shellharbour in the strong Wollongong competition. The talented fullback starred for the Riverina Under 23’s Academy in a trial game against the Victorian Under 20’s over the weekend and looks to be in great shape for his return to the red and green.
A couple of juniors fresh out of Weissel Cup will also be given their chance to impress for a spot in the starting seventeen after putting in a strong preseason. Joe Leggatt, Matt Fletcher Mitch Murphy and Rhys Graham are all long term juniors who have huge potential and a chance to play with some of the experience players in the top grade is a good reward for their committed effort over summer.
Edward Ansell, Harold Kirby, Peter Little, Ethan Mackenzie, Zac Wilson, Liam Carey, Ben Black, Brayden Sharrock, Aaron Wynne, Patrick Sagigi, James Hay, Connor McCauley, Will Merritt, Callum Price, Joe Leggatt, Matt Fletcher, Sione Niula, Aaron Bell, Ryan Inglis, Mitch Dunn, Rhys Graham, Wayne Goolagong, Mitch Murphy.
Brothers play the first game in the KO at 7pm Friday evening against Tullibigeal-Lakes United Sharks.
