Premier Rugby: Tigers remain undefeated after clash of the heavyweights


With four rounds of the 2020 Hospital Cup done and dusted, Easts remain the only undefeated side in the competition after the Tigers claimed the points in a blockbuster clash with GPS over the weekend.

Elsewhere, Brothers bounced back to beat Bond, Norths proved too good for Wests, and the University of Queensland snatched a last gasp victory over Sunnybank on Saturday.

Let’s take a look around the grounds.

Easts 35 v GPS 29

It was billed as the battle for the minor premiership, and Saturday’s clash between Easts and GPS did not fail to live up to the hype.

With a healthy wind at their back, the Gallopers defied the stubborn Easts defence to lead 17-10 at the break, before a second stanza fightback saw the Tigers wrestle back the momentum and eventually claim a 35-29 point win in front of their home crowd.
