Good to see Twidale has recovered from that hit Kuridrani put on last week. He was taken off at the break for what I can only assume was due to concussion. Is there HIA in 1st grade rugby?
There are full Head Injury Protocols that are implemented and administered by RA.

They are stringent and based on player welfare as the first objective.

For Brad to be playing he must have passed all the assessments and benchmarks.

I know Heather Arthy wold not let him play if he wasn't 100% medically cleared.

Rugby.com.au has Fa'agase back for UQ to play 40 minutes this week. Should be a big boost to their scrum which has been a bit of a weakness lately.
Think the perceived weakness is because of constant change in the second row. Seem to have used a lot of fellas in the locking spots but yet to settle on a definitive pair. So far this year all of these have started with a 4 or 5 on their back at some time.

Like the options Twidale and Thomas have this weekend, flat ball to Siakisini running the 10/12 channel or out the back to Campbell feeding Jooste/Grealy/Oats.

TJ will definitely make the inside defenders hold. Henry at 13 will have some tough defensive decisions to make . Has he played much 13?

Heather has provided the following commentarty:

"Brad passed all the questions immediately after the late and high hit from Krisi. He was taken off at half time purely as precautionary because for some reason he had a very sore jaw… and not having X-ray vision I didn’t want to risk him potentially having a fracture there. Despite being extremely confident he was not concussed he saw our club doc this week and passed the Scat 5 with flying colours, to which we can produce the paperwork if the QRU wishes. I appreciate the confidence expressed in me that I would put player welfare above a game result. After performing mouth to mouth resuscitation on Halley at those grounds 11 years ago I never ever want to experience anything like that again so I have a low threshold to remove any potential concussion from the game.

and if anyone thinks otherwise then I’m happy for them to speak to me face to face at GPS on Saturday. I’ll be there all day. But they had better be prepared if they are accusing me of mismanagement…."

Mate TJ is going to have his own difficulty stopping Raboiliku.

going to be like shooting 2 cannonballs at one another. I can’t wait for that contact zone impact between the 2 form crash ball inside centres of the comp.

Thought it was worth sharing that I was down at brothers last Friday for a kids birthday. He plays juniors at brothers and his favourite player is Tayler Adams. Not sure exactly how it came about but the Dad asked Tayler if would be possible to come down and say hello to the young fella on the day.

Not only did he say yes, he brought Mosiah Christian and another prems player (sorry didn’t know who he was) to play with the kids for a bit. I think they were originally meant to come for 30min but they ended up staying for an hour and a half, played touch non stop and even did autographs at the end. All of the kids where so pumped and loved every minute of it.

The parents tried to offer the players money for all the effort but they wouldn’t have a bar of it.

It was so great to see these boys giving back just for the love of it and wierdly now has me cheering for brothers as my second team

Yep , didn’t for a second mean he will run rampant, just the options it gives Twidale, who I rate as a clever ball player.

Should be a cracking contest .

UQ scrum under pressure from the first feed, gives away a penalty. Discipline a bit of an issue for UQ so far in general.

Really poor work from Tauakipulu. That ball could have stayed in the maul and they were in.
Yeah, he'll be embarrassed to have been denied by the smallest man on the field. I do think Wests should've just taken the 3 there though.

Cracking game so far, really even and tense. Dobbins is in everything, the more I see of him the more I want to see.
