They've recruited very well it looks like. Some of the younger talent too. Reckon they're a good chance of going back to back.
GPS SEASON PREVIEW
Well written and interesting article. However "No side has won consecutive titles since the now defunct Canberra Vikings in 2003, can GPS break another drought in 2019 and win two on the trot?"
is a little negligent of the truth!! Did the writer mean in the 21st Century?? Because that would make sense, otherwise South (90's) and Brothers (80's) had 5 in a row, UQ 4 in row in 50's and UQ (80's), the aforementioned Canberra and Brothers twice (50's & 70's) had three in a row.. and that's just the Hospital Cup (since 1946)!
That said, I am excited for Jeeps in a repeat, but get the data right. I know I'm proud of the efforts of Brothers forebears as I am sure others are of their clubs great results.
Quite enjoying the clashes between the Reds and Premier Rugby at the moment.
Last week it was premier trails and a skinny window till the Reds.
The boys have it right this weekend with prem trails and Club Championship and the Reds in Japan all at the same time! Well done guys. Video recorder will be running hot on Saturday.
Brisbane teams losing the previous 6
UQ struggled a little on Saturday, the Rats seemed a lot bigger and more physical. Only 3 or 4 players from last year looked to be playing with a lot of colts having a crack. Any other results from Saturday? How did the Compass Cup end up?
I watched the game on Fox and the the 9/10 combination was outstanding. In that 2nd half they controlled the tempo of the game and brought it home for GPS.The kicking game of the 9 in particular in general play.Yeah well done Jeeps. Congratulations well deserved! Certainly a game of 2 halves. At half time I was worried though, came back strongly in the second half, with a lot of quality possession. A chunk of that possession came through penalties and some poor discipline by SU.
Thought Jordie Lenac (? 9) had a really good game, the 10 (solid all night, good options and the man can kick a goal!) and so did King (8). Going to be hard to knock off if they can keep that pace up.
Last year I said Jeeps were the benchmark and this year I don't think it will be any different! My top 4/5
Anyone have the pregame UQ v Warringah score?
