Qld Premier Rugby 2022

Is the flyhalf for UQ - Declan MacGuire - the former GPS player? One of the blokes who owns Science of Fitness and they’re looking after UQ this year as well.

If so, that’s quite the rise for him. He was mostly a thirds player at GPS (with not exactly a great lineup of fly halves ahead of him). I wonder how long he is seat warming for Lynagh.

Different one I think. UQ one played Colts 1 in the GF for UQ a couple of years ago.

That’s a shame. I think the Reds popularity took a big hit this season, crowds were down generally and the back end results obviously very disappointing.

It would have been good to get some of the more headlining players to run around even for 20mins in clubland and get some of that exposure, free marketing for the Wallabies upcoming tours etc.

Another Brothers trainer in hot water yesterday with the referee after Bond Uni second try in Prem Grade.
The disrespect (and that's putting it lightly) being given to our refs by players and coaches has got out of hand in my view across all teams. Quite simply, it has to stop now and the QRU and clubs need to step up and support our officials to ensure we can continue to play the game we all love. I have seen and heard some disgraceful "banter" this season.

Has Matt Lodge had any further commitments with Norths? I see his name in the paper today linking to some NRL sides so I figured he might be done.

probably not. I have checked the team lists last couple weeks and havent seen him name.

you’d think if he made further commitment to the club we’d be hearing more from media about his outings.

I think Declan has been at UQ for a number of years after starting in Colts program.

Might be 2 of them out there hey?

No mate - the rule is that guys from higher grades should not be playing in lower grade when higher games are cancelled - it is just a vibe thing - not in the spirit of club rugby - wouldn’t meet the pub test IMO.
If a guy is selected in a second grade team for that week he shouldn’t play 3rd grade if the second grade game doesn’t go ahead. It’s clearly a breach of the competition rules.
Eli Pilz and Josh Coward both started 3rd grade for Easts that day and then started Premier Grade 2 weeks later. They are not just Reserve Grade players but established Premier Grade players. That's probably a vibe thing as well. I don't think any club can argue innocence with this sort of happenings.

I think you’ll find that these players were coming back from injury not listed to play in higher grades on that day. The rule specifically says that if you are chosen in a higher grade (ie. listed to start in Rugby explorer) and the higher grade game is canceled you cannot then play (start or off the bench) in a lower grade on that day. It is not just a good will or vibe thing it’s the rules - I just raise the vibe as the purpose of the rule. Or are Souths exempt from the rules of the competition?
