Premier Rugby Round 12: UQ, Jeeps & Bond flex muscle and extend lead at top of ladder

Round 12 of the Hospital Challenge Cup is in the books, with the University of Queensland, GPS and Bond University securing wins to consolidate their positions in the top three.

After a number of injuries and tight losses recently, the Bullsharks looked back to their best on the Gold Coast, running in seven tries to one in a comprehensive 46-7 display.

In his first game back from injury, Joey Fittock crossed for three tries in a trademark electric performance, while mid-season recruit Byron Hutchinson scored in his first game in Bond colours.

Captain Dan Boardman lauded his side’s performance after a tight loss to Easts last weekend.

“Very pleased with the turnaround from the boys,” Boardman said.
