By Michael Atkinson This Sunday, the University of Queensland Red Heavies face the Sunnybank Dragons in the Queensland Premier Rugby preliminary final, with the winner to play Brothers in the grand final next week. But this weekend’s match will have an added dimension to the battle with brothers Brendan and Conor Mitchell facing off as captains of Sunnybank and University respectively.
