Pretty crazy that Harry Wilson and Hunter Paisami were club rugby players last year and now about to make their debut for the Wallabies against the AB's.

Awesome effort , well deserved !

Daugunu similarly learnt much of his trade in QPR and would think Wright and McReight would not be too far behind getting a spot in the match day squad.

Angus Blyth and Wilson Blyth are partnering together in the second row for Bond Uni this week, exciting to see the brothers play together. Zane Nonggor is also starting THP.

Josh Nasser playing at hooker for UQ, carrying on his Reds hooker role..

Mac Grealy has pushed to the wing with Jock Campbell coming in at fullback for UQ.

Sean Farrell at blindside flanker is another interesting selection.

Will be interesting to see how Nasser goes at hooker at this level, I’m sure the instructions from Thorn were for UQ to persist with this.

Still not sold on the idea but I think Thorny and Lillicrap have a good eye for forward talent, maybe it was apparent he wouldn’t cut it as a prop at SR level but they knew he was too talented to let go.

Totally disagree on the Nasser hooker experiment.

Crazy that he played a game at hooker having never even played a game in the position at QPR level.

It was insulting to the other hookers in the Reds squad and in QPR.

His lineout throwing cost the Reds at times during his cameos.

He is not in the best two hookers at the Reds and he is not even in the best 2 hooking options at Uni.

Mick Heenan will not be happy that he has to play him at 2.

Mind you the QPR referees don't do a great job at enforcing the straight throwing objective at the lineout. I predict that it will cost Uni at some point over the next month.

Yeah , got to feel a bit for Tom Mellor .

He has been playing and throwing very well this season . The UQ lineout has been quite good .

There will be some serious lineout pressure on Nasser today with the Blyth brothers both playing for Bond.

Agree with all of the above. And to add to the intrigue, when the Uni team for today was originally published on the Rugby AU site Mellor was the hooker.

Uni v wests the over sized dogs had uni scrum peddling backwards until Nasser came on scored a try and the scrum situation reversed - sorry but Thorn knows what he is doing and I am sure Nasser can learn to throw better than amosa very quickly.

Great win by Easts over Brothers 15-13 - real nailbiter with Brothers missing a conversion to tie it up with 2 minutes to play. A few unexpected results, at least for my tipping - Bond beat UQ despite all those Reds players returning, Souths beat Wests.

Final table:
Easts 33
UQ 33
Bond 31
