Premier Rugby: Bond will stay true to their game plan against Red Heavies

By LIZ MOORE

It’s down to the wire for Bond’s finals hopes this weekend, and fullback Maxwell Dowd is backing his team’s exciting game and playmakers in against ladder leaders UQ.

After a disappointing 34-22 loss to GPS on the weekend, the Bull Sharks are hoping to utilise their home-ground advantage and force their way into the 2020 play-offs with a win against the tournament’s top competitors.

“They scored early and got on top of us quite quickly,” Dowd said of GPS. “We kind of came back a bit but their scrum was too powerful. They pushed us around the park a bit there.
