QLD Premier Rugby Round 1: Match Previews

By Michael Atkinson The 2018 Queensland Premier Rugby season kicks off this Saturday with four mouth-watering match ups. Here’s all you need to know about each clash. University of Queensland vs. Easts (Match of the Round) The Red Heavies have won four titles in the past eight seasons and are heavy favourites to add a fifth in 2018. They’ve gone through the last two regular seasons dropping just one game in each. The task for the Tigers is tremendous on Saturday. Brothers and GPS have shown in recent times that dominating the Students in the physical contest goes a long way to winning the game. That’s what Easts need to do. I'm really excited about their new outside centre, Landon Hayes. Former Aussie Schoolboy, spent some time in league, could be a revelation this season. Atko's tip: That said, it’s UQ by 12 for me. Brothers vs. GPS The previous game may be the QRU’s “Match of the Round” but this clash is guaranteed to be a memorable one. Traditio
