Premier Rugby: New chum Vest likes the Red Heavies secret to success

By LIZ MOORE   

After UQ’s 36-31 win against Brothers on the weekend securing their top-of-the-table position, Connor Vest says there’s no secret to the Students’ success.

The big-performing lock puts it all down to their inspiring coach, Michael Heenan, who has led UQ to Premierships in 11 years.

“There’s not real secret to it. It’s just we all sort of buy into what ‘Heeno’

is out there preaching to us,” Vest said, referring to Heenan who was recently awarded UQ’s Club Service Award for 2020.

“We’re just going out there trying to be the best player that we can be and working as a team to get that outcome,” Vest said.
