The second half of the Queensland Premier Rugby Competition was a stunner; with all teams proving that the months leading up to the finals will be enthralling.
The much-anticipated Welsby Cup match between first and second-placed Brothers and Easts lived up to its prestigious tag. Both teams played with guts and determination and Brothers earned a hard-fought 28-17 victory over the Tigers.
In other games, the Sunshine Coast received their first win of the season, narrowly defeating the Gold Coast 26-22. GPS achieved a very convincing win over Norths by winning 30-3. Souths beat reigning Premiers Sunnybank 31-26 whilst Uni came out on top over Wests, winning 13-8.
As each week goes by, the finals keep getting closer and closer. At this stage of the competition, it is really tight at the top and proves that it can be anyone’s game. What will the coming weeks bring for our stellar Premier Grade Competition? Only time will tell…
