Brothers Sunshine Coast picked up their first win in senior rugby union on Friday night with a 10 to 5 result over University in their round 4 Sunshine Coast Cup at Sippy Downs, Australia.

"It was bloody good," Brothers second rower Kalani O'Neill told Wikinews. "Conditions could've been better, [it was] a bit wet out there. But we played as a team, and got the [win, which] was fortunate. [We] had a real good game in the end of it.

The weather impacted the style of play from both sides. A downpour of rain fell during the day causing the ground to be waterlogged. They elected to keep play relatively close to the breakdown.

O'Neill continued: "I'd like to call out Jacko Jackson, one of the forwards: he always had intensity the whole game." He said Jackson "picked out a player and took him down. Out the back, another Jack. Just kept going in the corners just making space for us and getting us out there."

Despite the initial win the side, the side won’t let it define their season, promised O’Neill. "We've got 12 more rounds to go," he said. "So might as well aim high and keep going for them."
