Mayhew brothers cause mayhem for opposition

RUGBY UNION: For perennial try-scorer Jordan Mayhew, the chance to play alongside brother Brandon is something to savour.

The two have emerged as key personnel at Noosa in recent campaigns, cutting holes through opposing defensive lines with regularity.

Jordan bagged four tries in the reigning premier's 77-0 demolition of University of the Sunshine Coast in round four of this year's competition last weekend.

The 21-year-old relishes playing in the same team as his 23-year-old sibling.

"The last three years I've had the opportunity to play with him ...there's nothing like it really," he said.

"Communication is pretty easy with Brandon. We just try to look at where each other can improve and give each other advice. We have a pretty good mateship."

The two grew up south of Wellington, where rugby union was central to their days.

"Rugby was like life back then. Whenever we walked to the shops we'd have a footy with us."

He started playing at Noosa in under-15s and they have since come through the ranks of the club.

Jordan's been scoring tries with monotony out wide, although he can play half-back when required.

He said he's working on a few things in his game.

"If I get in a one-on-one situation I want to try and beat the man (so) the goal is to get in their head a bit and see what their thinking and (then) do what they don't expect," he said.

Brandon has been playing at fullback but can make an impact at flyhalf when needed.

The Dolphins are cruising on a 20-game unbeaten streak leading into a clash with Maroochydore at Cotton Tree on Saturday (3.30pm).

In the other match of the four-team premiership, USC hosts Caloundra (3.30pm).
