Queensland were very entertaining last week. The young ex-Raider is taking to this rough approximation of the game they play in heaven quite well. They played expansively, didn’t run out of puff in the end and their handling was brilliant in the wet. If they hold onto their form it will be a tough day for the Brumbies.

Bench looks shallow. Tipped them for the loss this weekend. That means they will win

Looks ok to me….Gerrard back from injury (he’s been our only consistent performer in the backs this year, sad to see him heading to Japan) & Mortlock out on the wing (had his one & only really good game for the year on the wing). Tyrone Smith has been pretty good & Toomua looked pretty good at No.10 for a guy playing his debut in a side beaten by 438328 points last week.
