Qld Premier Rugby 2023

I always find it interesting that some of the same guys who think that their teams are waiting for the Reds to come back are the same ones who blame the Wests for having Rebel players in it.
We should just be happy to see these guys raise the overall level of the comp.

By the way - I've heard there has been a backflip on the all wallabies back to club land edict. We will see some I am sure, but I believe they are getting run pretty hard at the moment so tacking on a game at the end of the week may not be seen as the best option.

So no Quade and Kerevi?? Surely those blokes need more than just a couple of hill sprints and laps around the oval.

I think it’s actually a logistical nightmare for those 2 players. This week they are in Sydney, so they fly up Thursday night training, return for a fan experience day Friday morning at Coogee then fly back to Brisbane.

Maybe a cameo off the bench for both these guys is on the cards if it means they can skip Thursday night training at Yoku?

But if we don’t get any wallabies this weekend in club rugby it will be a shame because across the ditch we had Ardie Savea (will be a ABs XV RWC) having a run back in clubland - Kiwis about repping clubland - but all our players are in a mass resting wrapped in cotton wool???? Lame!!

I don't have details as who will and won't play.

But perhaps there will be an appearance next week if not this.

Would they just put them into a Sydney club team to save on travel?

Depends on the rules around registrations probably and whether they want to bend them. Some of the players would likely already be registered with QLD clubs. They'd have to go through a release process with the QLD club and then sign for a NSW club, if they were following the rules to a tee.

Wasn't he playing Fullback?

Some looked like they could do with a rest before Eddie inevitably bludgeons them. Carter Gordon was looking pretty sore in the final couple of games.

Eddie would have them all down at Coogee Oval in 1st & 2nd Grade if he could.

It’s a lot easier process now. There’s no release… you can be registered ro multiple clubs and play for diff teams as long as the multiple registration falls outside of the competition of “your other” team.

There’s rebels players playing wests one week and then vic comp next week… also know of a wests player who was doing 3rd/4th grade in morning, jumping in his car and then playing home games for 1st grade at Toowoomba.

Well that sounds like common sense has prevailed.

I remember a few years ago GPS ran into trouble with players being registered in other state comps and failing to secure a release in time to be registered to qualify for finals in QPR. Used to happen a fair bit with overseas guys as well. Blokes coming across for a gap year and wanting to play 4th/5th grade but having to wait until their club back in the UK/Spain/Portugal faxed through a release form to the QRU.

I have scrolled through 75 pages of so-called QLD Premier Rugby comments - and I have seen little to nothing about players who are exciting, solid, up and coming etc. The closest was Kohan Herbert....the rest was drivel about Wests, UQ and Brothers - yes the same brothers who got spanked by a so-called ' No Way' Bond outfit. Nothing about Max Craig - a hooker leading try scoring ladder. Nothing about Tomas Grenon - the ex winger who is carving up as a loosie. Nothing about the excellent tactical boot of Shane Kennedy.....and nothing about Norths shaping up to be giant killers in the latter part of the season....just guff about hamburgers, some cockamamy Shute Shield points system and Wests' shocking field (but to tell the truth, their REAL crime is the club song)....and he might be a decent talent.....but CCJ is one of many quasi-stars wearing No 9 in the QPR. The magic is in the game that is played by some of the most talented players in the country..... Let's give THEM some more kudos - and leave the comments about hamburgers et al to the realms of Facebook and Tik Tok. Cheers......Actually Werchon is a heck of a talent, but let's hear more about the player....not where the player is - or isn't - going.
