Qld Premier Rugby 2022

It’s a bit more complicated than that with players not aligned to the reds or whom don’t have some type of Rugby Australia contract… hence the discussion

This is the part that confuses me.

I thought all players who are playing rugby within Australia at any level, have a registered contract with Rugby Australia?

And then certain professional players receive a Rugby Australia top-up.

Under the current rules I'm not sure the rule is in place that only players with a Rugby Australia top up get carte blanche selection. Rather anyone who's playing in Australia. And this is of course different to how it has been a few years ago.

A few posters have listed the competition rules regarding ladder positions and they have consistently listed most number of wins being the first used as a tie breaker followed by PD if teams are tied on points.

The Hospital Cup wrap up on Rugby Xplorer still claiming Easts are a chance of taking 4th spot off Brothers if they win by a big enough margin to better Brothers' PD, if on the off chance Brothers lose to Sunnybank without gaining a bonus point. Highly unlikely , but reported as a possibility.

Must admit I always thought PD was it when teams are tied on competition points. The number of wins being used was news to me, seems to be the same for those doing the Weekly Wrap ups.


7.1 lists how ladder positions are determined

Thanks for the link old school.

looks like the bye week is credited as a match… meaning jooste/Carter Gordon both in frame for their 6th match this weekend

So as long as the sun sets in the east on the evening of 31st June and your penalty try was the result of a west to east lineout and a rolling maul heading south to north you can have the better position on the table and your rep boy available for the final?

Got it!!

I thought players could be contracted by one of the Australian states/clubs/franchises without having a Rugby Australia contracts or are all Super players centrally contracted to Rugby Australia? Does contracted in the QPR rules mean contracted to the Reds or is it extended to the other Australian franchises.

My take is Contracted players is any professional player who has a contract. They are eligible if they are registered and on rugby Xplorer by the 3rd of July. No minimum games required as outlined in 10.2(1)

Anyone see the new interface upgrades on rugby Xplorer? When you click into team lists it has profile pictures next to name (no photos uploaded yet)

Would be nice if we can eventually click on a players name and see a players individual stats.

We have evolved a long way since the days as a kid I would wake up on Sunday morning and open the sports section of Sunday mail to see my name where I scored a try the day before for my junior rugby club.

So the Wallabies are pretty much kicking off the same time as QPR this weekend, no matter whether you like or dislike the Wallabies at the moment - the timing sucks!

Doesn't clash with SS though 1st grade though, they're playing Prelim finals on Sunday.

Another own goal from QRU in managing the club rugby competition. It just isn't a priority for them - how did they not have the vision to schedule around this?

This is not a own goal.

qpr schedule was finalised 6 months ago::: the test window not so much, that was probably done around June/July for the TRC.

let’s all be critical of the NSW dominated Rugby Australia HQ/South Australian govt whom probably never even factored in the qpr games.

I really hope your post is dripping with sarcasm……

The test in Adelaide would be scheduled by SANZAR to not clash with the AB’s v Pumas as well as being viewer friendly time wise for those watching in South Africa.

Maybe also not to clash with some AFL game at the business end of their season to help with local attendance.

Is this a one way street?? I can't remember the last time a test match in SA was played at a viewer friendly time here.
Yeah , get your point , but it is SANZAR and time friendly for SA is also time friendly for Europe. Gut feeling is this pays more than Australian coverage.

Did Vunivalu end up getting cited for the alleged eye gouge last week? Regardless, he did himself no favours regarding Wallaby selection with his defence and yellow card.

Wests will be happy though, he will be a handy addition for finals.

Great to hear that the non 23 Wallabies will once again play club rugby this weekend. It should be a similar UQ team minus Tate. Yoku Road looks like the place to be on Saturday.

where did you read this?

whilst I’m a big advocate of club rugby it’s important to have options available in Adelaide… what happens with a repeat of Quade coopers calf strain, hour before the england test?

You'd think there is already extra cover for some positions - for example Petaia isn't in the 23, he would probably be travelling to cover a wing/fullback emergency, which would mean Jock and Vunivalu stay in club rugby.
