By Tom Primmer
UQ take on Easts in a grand final rematch, Dane Haylett-Petty will boost a GPS side hosting Sunnybank, Norths take on Wests and Souths look to continue their good form against Brothers. We checked in with the camps to bring you the latest news ahead of round four this weekend.
UQ v Easts
The University of Queensland will take on Easts for the first time since the 2020 Grand Final this weekend, but the Students have chosen against using the pain of that defeat to motivate them this weekend.
Last season’s decider saw the Tigers lift the Hospital Cup in emphatic fashion, their scrum driving the side to a crushing win over Uni at Ballymore.
Few in the UQ setup are able to forget that day, but assistant coach Elton Berrange said that clash has not been spoken about ahead of the rematch.
“We haven’t given the Grand Final rematch tag much thought to be honest,” Berrange said.
