Cootamundra have lost their second game of the season after failing to fire in the last 40 minutes against Brothers at the weekend.
The Brethren continued their powerful start to the season with a 19-6 win over the Bulldogs at Les Boyd Oval.
It was just the Bulldogs’ second loss of the season but they are yet to come away with a win against a fellow top four side with their other loss coming against Southcity.
Cootamundra centre Matt Forsyth opened the scoring before Brothers hit back through Harold Kirby.
A penalty goal from Forsyth saw the teams level going into half-time.
Things were locked at 6-all after a tight first half before James Hay scored two tries to give Brothers the advantage. Full match report
