AIR TIME: Biloela Rugby Union forward Rob Wessling takes th eline-out during the side's loss to Rockhampton Brothers at Rugby Park on the weekend.

BILOELA Rugby Union again performed well and continued to show improvement but failed to score points with a 28-0 loss to Rockhampton Brothers on Saturday at Rugby Park.

Biloela again started the game strongly and managed to maintain possession of the ball for long periods putting the Brother's side under pressure.

Critical errors and turn overs allowed the Brothers' side to score three converted long-range tries in the first half, to lead 21-0 half time.

The second half was similar to the first with Biloela errors resulting in a single converted try to the Brethren.

Biloela's best chance to score was a swift back line move that found winger Laurie London in space.

Unfortunately London was taken high stopping him two metres from the try line.

The incident resulted in a Brothers player being sin binned.

“For most of the game we looked the better team controlling the ball and possession,” coach Dean Brewer said.

“At the moment we seem to make one error and the opposition is able to score from them.

“In the first half we turned the ball over three times and they scored converted tries from two of them.

“Unfortunately their try in the second half was the same thing from a 95-metre intercept.

“Its hard to take at the end of the game, but I firmly believe a win and a big win at that is just around the corner,” Brewer said.

Biloela's best on the day were Matt Dawson, Paul Newby and man-of-the-match Jared Dunlop. The players' player was Tim Hollingworth.

Biloela has a bye this week and then plays University at Emu Park.
