.and will most probably not be "available" until the end of the GPS season (in 3 weeks) which adds further insult and questions about this selection.
Does anybody know the top point scorers?
How Josh Russell (Uni) was not selected is staggering given his points scoring performance. Can play and did play anywhere in the backline during the season.
I'm not surprised, but disappointed there arent a few more heelers colts in the Country team. They accounted for UQ during their tour very convincingly - 70odd to Nil.
Hate to burst your bubble but the Heelers played Uni's Colts 3 team. UQ are not that stupid to play their Colts 1 team mid-week leading into important games at the back end of the season.
If that is what they did it is understandable but pretty disrespectful to a team that travels as far as they did
Anyone know if these two teams get a crack against each other? Would love to see a game between the two
Does anyone know anything about the Australian Barbarians? Who are they? Team list?
Do we know if games will be streamed?
That year might have been his first at TSS and first at union. His origins are as a league player and I suspect QRU are either trying to entice him to stay in union when he finishes school this year or test him at this rep level to see if he is worth trying to keep. I've only watched him in 3 games over the last 2 years and while he can have an impact, I think a couple of Colts loose forwards have been hard done by (Webster and Howard).
Teams had a not so "hit and giggle" session on Tuesday night under lights at Norths. Played in thirds the Country lads got out of the box quicker and steam rolled to a 14 - 0 lead after 7 minutes. Happy to be corrected with the score updates but at the end of the first third Country up 21-12. Change of a few key positions in the City team for the second stanza saw them control all aspects of the game and lead 26-21. Final third City kept the momentum and ran away something like 48-26 winners. Pretty good hit out to clean the rust out of the engine. Handling was a little down and timing sometimes off. Both teams missing the big boy NRC players so it will be interesting to see the line ups when and if these players come back.
Thought country backs were very good but huge disparity in forwards favouring city for the 2nd and 3rd thirds.
Can’t say I agree with you. There were some nice moments in the 1st third, after that though I thought they were out played. Nice try to their ten during loose play in the last though.
Rugby.com has replays of day 1 & 2 of the URC. Haven’t watched them but looking at the scores, the two QLD teams are leading the ladders and doubt Day 3 will change that. Looking like an all QLD final on Friday!
Well ironically the team, coaches and selectors paid the price for his selection in the team in the finals on Friday. After injury to Connors he started at 8. But like earlier in the week he found the step up to guys his own age and strength and with an extra 10 games or so played this season a bit too much.
After pedestrian play and a few errors, the last being Lucas stripping ball off him to score second try, he was hooked at 15 minute mark. But part of the damage already done.
