Brothers can send Bond’s semi-final hopes down the Canal with victory

Two rounds of the 2021 Hospital Challenge Cup remain as three teams battle for the two remaining spots in the top-four.

Bond University and Brothers are two of those teams and they’ll do battle on the Gold Coast this Saturday, with the home side’s season and finals campaign on the line.

The Brethren sit in fourth spot, seven-points ahead of fifth-placed Bond, and could knock the Bullsharks out of finals contention with a win at the Canal.

After a last start loss to Wests, the Gold Coasters will be without regular flyhalf James Abrosini, with the experienced Justin Bernstein coming into the starting side.
