A Manu Monts captained side remained hard beat as they fought back, making a late comeback with a try at 12-5 to half time.
The second half was a battle of the titans, as Wanderers remained hungry while the Brothers outfit put up resilient armies on alert near the try line. But that didn’t stop the Wanderers to touch down at Brothers nest, pocketing 2 tries to comfortably sail News with a 15 -12 win.
