As a neutral, I thought it was a great game! Whites backline were dominant all game, and they caused absolute chaos the second they got behind the Owls defensive line.
The scrums were even, and for the first hour the lineouts were too, but then Whites caught on to the fact that Owls only through to their 8 and just competed with him.
The scrumhalf for Uni was fantastic, and their flyhalf was probably MotM. Stampede calls the Owls 11 "Twinkle-Toes", but he had some great power behind him too. For Queanbeyan, I thought Penca and Tiatia were their best.
Yea mate it was a tough old battle - Uni seem to step up when they play the Whites.
As you mentioned the half-back was great for Uni and their 5/8 was everywhere - had a great game!
As I mentioned in my post I think the Whites are in need of the BYE - they seemed to lack abit of spark - they have a Bye this week / Wests and then another Bye - then one last Bye in the last round - which I think is a perfect draw to be honest in regards to resting/peaking.
