    Lucas and Henry just don’t connect. Maybe Hegarty and Henry we could see a different outcome. Lucas has been at flyhalf from Round 1 so doubt a position change to accomodate Henry.

    Queensland Country can still win this comp, so long as they can make the finals.

    Might be a bit of player movement in QPR next year with the coaching shuffle:

    Carl Marshall to coach Wests;
    Sione Fukofeku - leaves Easts for head role @ Snbk;
    Mark Bartholomuz to replace Sione @ Easts;
    Todd Dammers steps up from colts to Prems @ Souths;
    Matho returns to Brothers;

    I hear some players following coaches whilst other are looking for new homes including a number of NRC players.

    Ahh the old loyalty to club vs. loyalty to coach dilemma.

    "That talent has been on display from the outset in this season’s NRC, where Wilson leads the competition for ball carries, shares the most offloads with Queensland Reds squad-mate, Brisbane City captain and last week’s Rising Star nominee Fraser McReight, and quite incredibly, is in the top five for metres gained. And that last stat is worth pausing on. Wilson, in fifth on 336 metres from five games, trails four outside backs: Brisbane City’s Jordan Luke, Western Force flyer Jonah Placid, NSW Country fullback Tim Clements, and Queensland Country speedster Filipo Daugunu in top spot."

    “I know he’s got a kicking game there, but I keep telling him that I don’t want to see it,” Seib laughs."

    Wilson is a fantastic talent. As is McReight too.

    I think it was Rd 2 when they both started, I thought they combined very well

    Also 11th in the comp in defenders beaten and 16th for Tackles made. Does it on both sides of the ball.

    OMG. Why have they taken Henry off??

    He was in everything and they will miss his defence.

    He goes off and BOOM. TRY!!


    Henry and Passami need ball and the forwards aren’t doing it!!

    Unless he is injured this will hurt

    QLD Country need Carter Gordon back asap. Can't rely on Harry Wilson any more than we already do.

    It would appear from the table that it is still possible that BC & QC can still make the finals is that correct?

    Thanks Reg - better get out to Bottomley & support BC on Saturday then!

    Tough challenge for QC in Fiji.

    Both games appear to being played at the same time.

    What's Jordan Luke's history and situation? Has been finishing really well for City this season. Looks like he'd be worth inviting to pre-season

    agree, I've been impressed with him. Think he's a kiwi? But looks a very solid finisher.
