While the brothers were unable to top off Cottesloe Rugby Union Club’s 120th year with a premiership, Nick celebrated his 23rd birthday on the day by winning man of the match.

Nedlands Rugby Union Football Club claimed the premiership cup with a 20-14 victory over the Gulls, making it third time lucky for the Foreshore team that have finished second the past two years.

Brett, a former WA player and past president, has been involved with the Cottesloe club for 25 years and still plays in the Fifth Grade competition.

Nick has been training with the Western Force squad and lined up for the |WA side against the British & Irish |Lions in June.

Alistair plays colts for Cottesloe but was chosen to be part of the Premier Grade grand final team.
