Brothers set benchmark in CRU Comp

The Kramer Ausenco Brothers are one of the pioneer clubs in the country, as far as Rugby Union is concerned, spanning more than fifty (50) years of its existence as a franchise.

Their record is unmatched and unrivalled in the 15-men code – in terms of individual achievements and club accomplishments collectively.

They have a colorful and well decorated record in the history of Rugby Union in PNG. Brothers are an absolute force to be reckoned with.

Aside from other accomplishments under the previous coaches, these are a couple of Brothers incredible records under coach Joe Kautu:

* Won Seven (7) consecutive Minor Premierships (2017-2023)

* Won Four (4) consecutive Grand Finals (2018-2021)

* Was undefeated in 2019

* Lost two Grand Finals in 2017 to University Piggies and 2022 to Harlequins

* Currently undefeated in the 2023 regular rounds (15 matches)

The impressive records above speak volumes about Brothers dominance in the CRU Competition. The way Brothers are playing, they stand a chance to snatch both the Minor Premiership and Premiership this season.

The men in black have dominated the Men’s Premier Rugby Union Competition in the country for over a decade.

In comparison, they are like the Melbourne Storm of CRU. Just like Melbourne in the NRL, Brothers have set the benchmark in the CRU competition.

Brothers have yet to taste a defeat this season. They have registered 15 consecutive wins on the trot and are sitting comfortably on top of the ladder. They are unstoppable and invincible at the moment.

Given their dominance and wealth of experience, Brothers have the premiership credentials to stake their claim for the 2023 Pepsi Capital Rugby Union trophy.

The regular season of CRU has ended last weekend and play-offs will start this weekend. Top 4 teams have been qualified to meet in the finals.

Brothers will go head-to-head with Defence in the Major Semi-Final blockbuster showdown, which will be the main game to watch for the play-offs. This game should be a cracker.
