By Tom Primmer & Brenden Hertel

The University of Queensland called on the experience of a former Wallaby captain to extend their winning undefeated run in the Hospital Challenge Cup, while reigning premiers Easts secured their second win of 2021 in Round 10.

In a thrilling contest at Albion, 129-cap Wallaby Stephen Moore made his first appearance on a Rugby field since 2017, helping the Students to a 33-32 win over Brothers in front of a raucous Crosby Park crowd.

Trailing 33-17 with 20-minutes to play, the hosts fought back late, with a Billy Bulley try after the siren bringing the margin within one-point.
