Some outstanding games of Colts Rugby this weekend. We were at the UQ vs Easts game and what a great game of football it was. A very tight tussle but in the end UQ were the victors. Some good young talent on the paddock out there and some standout performances but a number of individuals we saw.
Easts look like they are a well structured team with a lot of horse power up front and dominated in the forwards. The backs were a lot more even. Easts threw everything at UQ but they held out. Constant pressure from Easts forced mistakes by UQ. A number of standouts from both teams but notably the UQ No.12 who seemed to break the first line of defence regularly, UQ 15 who opened up the game with each touch and the UQ No.9 who delivered great ball service and tactical kicking like an old hand, and UQ no 6 who played a very physical and dominate game.
Easts No 13, 8 and 10 showed some skill in attack and stamped their mark on the game. Overall a fantastic game and a great showcase of the up and coming talent in the Colts ranks.
As we understand, some of these young men are part of the Reds 20 program so the future of Qld rugby looks bright.
