Hyne missed 3 games having played for the brumbies on July 2, so he missed that games for Vikings and their last two games. Worth noting Daniel Penca missed the first 5 games of the season and was a single point behind. Having three blokes all so close didn't help any of the Qbn players as they were all taking points off each other which I would say makes the achievement of Ryan and OJ even more impressive.
That's right I forgot Penca missed games at the start of the year. Pretty unbelievable achievment for QBN to get three backrowers all so close together like that.
I think it's only fitting that the McDougal medal race would be so close. Given that the premiership race was so close this year as well.
