Past Brothers claim the BRL Toyota Cup trophy for 2019
RUGBY LEAGUE: Wallaroos coach Peter Waters could still find positives after his team were defeated 58-0 by Past Brothers in the A grade Toyota Cup trophy match.
The team were without eight of their regular players and six of the under 18 team backed up after their game to play for the senior team.
"We are in a tough spot at the moment with plenty of injuries,” Water said.
"It is not great at the moment but the future is bright with the under 18 boys coming through.”
"It bodes well for the future of the club.”
Waters understands that the next few weeks will be difficult for the team as they manage the workload of the players as they wait for the injured players to return.
"We will make into the finals and hopefully we will be fit enough to mount a challenge,” he said.
The round 12 match had extra significance with it doubling up as the Toyota Cup trophy match.
