Premier Rugby: Brothers alive, Jeeps win, Tigers go top and Bond impressive

By TOM PRIMMER

With Round Nine in the books, just two games of the Hospital Cup season remain, and five teams are still in finals contention after the weekend’s action.

Brothers continued their charge to the finals with a strong win over the Eagles in the Northside derby, but GPS kept the Brethren out of the four with a comprehensive win against Souths.

Easts moved into first position with a seven-point win over Wests at Tigerland, ending the Bulldogs’ slim finals hopes.

To round out the action, Bond University continued their strong form with a win over Sunnybank.
