Brothers are through to their eighth straight leaguetag grand final after a big win over Cootamundra on Sunday.
There hadn’t been a lot between the two sides this season, but the experienced Wagga side fired in the preliminary final to take a 26-0 win.
After letting a 10-point lead slip against Albury last week, there was no repeat at Equex Centre this time around.
Brothers led 10-0 at the break but continued on with the job as they look to make it three straight wins over the Thunder in grand finals.
Coach Craig Stewart was pleased with how they stepped up.
“It was a great effort by the girls,” Stewart said.
“It was a different team to the one from last week.
“There was more enthusiasm and they kept that intensity for the whole game.
“It was very pleasing.”
Brothers pounced early with Tarni Price scoring after four minutes before Madison Dunn scored a 70-metre effort midway through the first half to set up the half-time advantage.
Brothers superior kicking game came to the fore as they forced Kristen Byrne into a mistake close to her own line and in the next set Brooke Wiggett went over.
Bridget Horsley then scored off a wrap around play with five remaining before Naomi Price sealed the win with her late try.
Brothers are looking to win their seventh premiership on Saturday and Stewart thought their more experienced players such Dunn, Jess and Nicole Absolum, Gab Suckling and Horsley as stepped up to keep them in the hunt.
