    GPS v East - The Lads from Yoku Rd are having an unlucky season thus far, but if you look at the results they have been competitive even against the top sides, If GPS are going to win a game its going to be at home to East. GPS 5+

    Sunnybank v West - Its hard to bet against the Boys from The Bank when they are playing at home, this will be an important game for Sunnybank to solidify their Top 4 spot. It will be interesting to see how West bounce back after the loss to Norths last week. Sunnybank 12+

    Brothers v Souths - Lots of good match ups across the park, Souths have a slight edge in the forwards and Brothers have the edge in the back line. Souths play a direct style of footy utilising their size but tend to bunch quickly and struggle at times in broken play. Brothers on the other hand tend to play a faster style of footy which is a great counter, however their inability to close out games on the defensive end is a problem, if Brothers stick to their quick style of footy and play with some width I think they will come out on top. Brothers 10+

    UQ v Bond - Everyone expects UQ to get the job done, however Bond have nothing to lose and everything to gain. I do expect this game to be a lot closer than what people think. UQ 10+

    A lot of the Uni boys have exams on at the moment, which will effect a number of teams, so you throw out the form guide for this round.

    I am a UQ supporter but will definitely be at Crosby road this weekend for the colts 1 matchup between brothers and souths.
    It will be the battle of Souths pack v Brothers backline. If brothers can hold their own in the scrum and keep a huge souths pack at bay then Brother's backline will run circles around Souths.
    Some big match ups: Lea v Ralston, Tarabay v Smith , Cross v Gerrard and plenty more.
    For me, if Brothers can hold back the huge souths pack then Brothers will win 10+.
    Key word. IF!!!
    Cant wait for it

    Ralston has been playing prem grade for most of the season and Lea the last few weeks as well. More likely to see them oppose one another at 3.20 than 12.30pm.

    Ralston back in Colts this week. And will be going head to head with Lea if he is fit.

    Some other great head to head clashes in this game with Dobbins v Fourie and Cross v Gerrard.

    Note - the game is at 1:10pm.

    What’s the reason for Ralston playing Colts?
    Possibly to keep their Colts team alive for finals, since Premiers are a shoe in?

    No contest. Brothers 31-0.
    So much for my opinion Souths forwards would dominate.
    They were monstered.
    Gerrard had a forgettable game.
    Brothers back row 3 were impressive.

    Reno can be a threat with the ball in hand , but doesn’t do enough work around the park for mine.

    I’d take the work ethic and involvement of Cross from Brothers or Beil from UQ over the occasional damaging run any day of the week. Particularly when you consider they both also possess a pretty handy ball carry as well.

    I will just leave this here from my pre season review.

    Also, a magnificent effort by Brothers yesterday. Still a long way to go though. And I always say, anything can happen in finals.

    Did Villiami Lea play Colts 1 or Prems?

    Well done Brothers good win, the wide wide game plan worked well - standouts Brothers 1,2,3, 8, 10

    Souths 9 and 10 really under delivered, slow ball poor decision making - it was also surprising how quickly Souths let Brothers get under their skin. Let’s see how they get on this weekend.

    Byron Ralston down as scoring a double in prem grade on Rugby Xplorer.

    Did he play colts and then bench for prem grade? Or did he get a start in prems?

    Name withheld on the lineups for the game.

    Will be interesting to see how Souths bounce back from their loss to Brothers last week in their match up with UQ tomorrow.

    UQ and Brothers play a similar up tempo game and no doubt UQ will be looking to move the big Souths forward pack around to the point of discomfort. Souths will need to be very disciplined and control possession to prevent being run off the park the way they were last week.

    Important game for both teams with regards to position on the ladder, particularly with Brothers and SB having likely wins this weekend.

    Souths v UQ game of the round Souths in a very close one that could go either way.

    Sunnybank v Norths Sunnybank by lots

    West v Brothers Brothers were clearly hyped up last week and could either set it as their new standard or drop back. West have plenty of strike power all over the park. I expect Brothers in a close one.

    Bond v GPS. Bond by lots

    Thoughts gents.
