Our young Colts 1 team got a football lesson from UQ who maintained their place at the top of the table. They scored 9 tries to one in a disciplined and clinical display, which highlighted our mistakes. Once again, lineout throwing was a weakness, with poor communication between the thrower and his jumpers.
There was one bright note though – a 70m intercept try by promising lock Harry Hoy. On the blind side of the ruck, he outstripped 3 chasers to score next to the posts. Down 12-7 at halftime Bond looked to be in with a chance. But UQ dominated the set piece and ran riot in the backs to score 9 tries and win 50-7.
We weren’t helped by a string of absentees and injuries, notably a shoulder problem for workhorse Austin Northey. It’s just as well coach Damian Cahill was sitting alone in the Eastern grandstand, as his comments might have offended the Mums in the main stand!
