Wests Bulldogs Premier Colts coach is Fraser Tauakipulu
Alex Mafi (Nudgee) & PJ van den Berg (TSS) have received the 2015 John Eales scholarships from Bond Uni
Would assume they'd start in Premier Colts for Bond Uni
Good move from wests. Fraser was pretty much the only reason his nephew JJ Taulagi came to uni back in the day. He will have his finger on the paulse in terms of recruitment and is a pretty handy coach.Wests Bulldogs Premier Colts coach is Fraser Tauakipulu
Does anyone know how the Colts numbers are stacking up at Sylvan Rd and Shaw Rd ? How many teams likely ?

I watched Uni & Bond Prems & loved the fwd battle from the getgo. Both sides were straight into it with some big hits & mongrel attitude that lasted the whole match. Scrums & lineouts seemed very clean/efficient for this early in the season & on a very hot day the S&C came in handy for both sides.
I was a little disappointed with the backline moves from both, the ball rarely made it cleanly past #12 but phase ball to wingers was pretty good from UQ. Bond were willing, but it's hard to build momentum when you don't have the ball. All in all a great way to spend a Sat arvo!
Are Sunnybank really strong in Colts this year? Or are Souths very very weak? Can't believe those scorelines. A real trial by fire this year for Nate Nicol in his first year coaching. I wonder if Souths are regretting not going with a bloke who has more coaching experience.
Quick is now in grades.Big Dog I recall a lot of State High boys used to head to Souths & Easts, yet there are quite a few SH names in that Sunnybank team. Also, Tualima (SH), Fittock (TSS), Quick are still to front for Sunnybank from 20s. Sunnybank are looking strong & worrying for Souths.
Great to see the Norths results!
