The Brothers� promotion to WA�s top rugby union competition this season added the exciting prospect of a new local rivalry with the Roos.
Wanneroo had not won a game heading into the clash, leaving Joondalup, which had won three matches, a prime opportunity to claim bragging rights for the first time.
But the Roos sneaked home 17-13 in a tight beginning to what could become a rich history between the clubs.
Joondalup welcomed new sponsorship from the State Government-run Belt Up program on game day.
The club now owns 45 Belt Up-branded balls for use in training and matches
