Qld Premier Rugby 2023

Sir Charles

He was named in the NPC for the BOP Steamers and didn't really fire - to be fair they also had a German super star coming through at the same time who is currently playing Super Rugby for the Blues. Kohan also played alongside Josh Vuta who also turned down an Aus School boys jumper for an opportunity in NZ with the Chiefs, so I was not surprised to see him suit up for the Magpies this season with Kohan.

Fairly sure Garrick coached Kohan at Downloads too

A lot of now-familiar names played in that tournament.

Maybe Wests get up this weekend against Brothers who have had to win a lot of games in a row to make it to here. But it's a brave bet.

The last time Brothers lost they scored 31 points against GPS 58 in round 16 but since then have beaten Souths and put on 48, Wests (44), Easts (35), Easts in minor semi final (46) and Bond in preliminary final (42). That's all out attack.

Unless Wests turn up with a defensive mindset and are prepared to put their fresher bodies on the line, they are toast.
If they think they can outscore Brothers in a shooting match, they might also be toast.

Grand finals are about who wants it more. With Wests having a recent success, momentum and history is on Brothers' side.

Yeah agree, Brothers are coming in hot.

Think Uru is a big out for Wests, he was the difference in last years’ GF, without him not sure Wests get the chocolates.

The midfield control of Creighton and Stewart will be the defining factor for mine.

TBH, pretty hard for a UQ supporter to pick a favourite in this battle, but think the Filth might just get it done. I will now go and self flagellate……..

The same comparison can be said about Bond - but you say Bond had a great season and Brothers 2nd Grade had a dramatic fall from grace lol.
Played 16
Won 14
F&A 145
Comp Point 69
Won minor premiership by 9 points
Lose Major to West and Prelim to Brothers

Choke? Maybe!! - very confusing, turn around mate you are running backwards lol
Put that way and they were both deserved minor premiers who went out in straight sets so maybe both chokers!!
Or maybe they just came up against finals opponents who were hungrier and more accomplished.

If you know what’s best for you the nomad…. You want the evil empire to have the villain status…

Bulldogs championships come around once every blue moon but brothers are in the GF every couple of years.

Does UQ lead brothers in the H2H hospital cup winners standing?

That only works for them if the game is delayed a few days, as it stands a championship this weekend would be twice in a blue moon:

Happy to go with they both choked.

Everyone just hates brothers more so hence why we target them and not bond :p

Ha, didn't say I want the Filth to win , just think they might get up is all, hence my comment that followed.

Yes UQ has a healthy lead in premiership titles over Brothers.

How does that work over the history of the Hospital Cup haven’t Brothers won it more than any other club?

Few subtle jabs there in the video posted on QLD Premier Rugby with Brothers coach and captain. I think they mentioned 5 times that the club had 7 teams in GF.
