BUSTLING Noosa forward Danny Brewster is rapidly emerging as the recruit of the season after he kicked 12 goals in a Weyba Road wipeout of struggling Mayne on Saturday.

Brewster kicked more than three times Mayne’s total score in a lopsided encounter the Sunshine Coast Tigers won by 29.127 (191) to 4.3 (27) over the Brisbane version of the Tigers.
And, as much as it was a superb all-round term performance, Brewster’s work up front stood out like a beacon on a dark night.
Possessed with a strong physique, and equally strong marking hands, Brewster now leads the Pineapple Hotel Cup goalkicking race with 59 from 12 matches,  at an average of 4.92 per match.
Brewster is in his first season with Noosa after moving north with girlfriend Jess from Warragul Industrials in the Ellinbank District Football League.
Now 24,, Brewster also played with Narre Warren, but it came as a surprise to hear that he moved north as a centre half-forward.
With another big signing in Dayne Frew holding down that position, Brewster was pushed to spearhead by coach Wayne Fletcher – with great results, it seems.
Saturday’s 12 goals was Brewster’s career high. He kicked 10 goals once for Narre Warren and matched that haul in round nine this season against Maroochy-Northshore.
“He works hard and because of that, eventually, things are going to go his way,’ said Fletcher of Brewster.
“On Saturday he certainly did that. Most of his goals came from strong marks one on one – and he gave off a few as well.”
Fletcher said the Nooa defence was again solid and the midfield duly ran rings around the undermanned Mayne.
“We certainly played some good footy,” he said. “We used the ball well and worked as a team.”
Brewster, rover Caleb Isles, defender Adam Bovalino and Tom McKittrick were best for Noosa.
Frustrated Mayne player-coach Luke Faulkner described Noosa as ‘just too big and too good’.
Mayne were missing up to 15 of their better players, who were always going to be up against it.
“We were never going to win with the side we had,” said Faulkner. “It makes it hard when you have so many out.
“It was a fair effort by us in the first half to try and make it a contest, but in the second half we just rolled over.”
Mayne’s best were the Faulkner brothers Luke and Blake, along with wingman Jake Magill.
