Hardly call a 17-14 win for Easts convincing. A penalty goal the difference between the Red Heavies and the Tigers.Am hearing that Tom Lynagh is done for the season in UQ Colts after 2 appearances.
A loss for UQ considering they have only been able to score over 19 points once in 6 games . One of those games was a forgive in the appalling conditions v. Brothers at UQ - although that didn’t stop Brothers going on a rampage and putting 31 points on.
And all 5 of their tries were to the centres and wingers.
In fact , 6 of the 8 tries scored against UQ have been to backs and 9 of 11 tries scored by UQ have been through their forwards.
Brothers , Easts and Souths are the top 3 with Easts beating UQ convincingly on the weekend with Easts 13 , Gus Godwin , a stand out , pretty much doing what he wanted with UQ’s midfield. Bearing in mind that Souths pretty much beat themselves moreso than what UQ won it with two knock ons over the try line .
Wests have come good , Norths look like they’ ve either been screwed or unable to control a couple of fundamental issues with their set piece (lineout) that have cost them in games. Bond are a bit of an undefeated sleeper but haven’t played their toughest games yet of the first round.
These 3 teams with UQ will be nipping at the heels of Souths and fighting out for that 4th spot
