Tight Fights - QPR Round 7 Preview

Round seven of QPR is here with every result putting every table position up for grabs (except first). Some great games coming at us and a tough old week of tipping!

Let's rip in.


What a game.

Undefeated sides UQ and GPS are centre stage this week duelling for the Bunter Bowl and Halley Appleby Memorial trophy in front of arguably this biggest of ladies day in QPR.

Hooker Josh Nasser returns alongside fellow Reds loose forward Sam Wallis and fullback Mac Grealy, with veteran Scott Gale moving off the bench to start at flyhalf.

Coming off the bye GPS have only one change to their starting line up with Teti Tela jumping in the centres for Kris Kurindrani.

The Gallopers may gather strength from the glue factory but UQ are too hot to doubt at the moment.

Who wins?

UQ .

Wests v Bond

With two loses on the trot fourth placed Bond host the team who just took third away from them, Wests and both teams have skilled up for the occasion.

Finally cleared from his Japanese side Richard Skelton will start at #8 for the Bulldogs, Reds half back Moses Sorovi is back starting, Rebels FIFO Mason Gordon at fullback and prop Liam Usher moves from bench to starting XV.

Bond welcomes back Reds lock Angus Blyth to start alongside a backline restored to full power with Dion Samuela and Joey Fittock returning from injury.

This is going to be awfully tight, but the game will come down to backline attack and efficient territory kicking.

Bond to win.

Brothers v Sunnybank

Brothers are fringing the top four by one point and fourth win in a row against eighth placed Sunnybank could get them there in round seven.

Brothers prop Harry Vella and winger Tom Da Forno have moved off the bench alongside the returning Will Wilson at lock for the starting XV.

For Sunnybank, the front row Feao brothers are back, Dave starting and Albert on the bench, in the backs Remmo Van Rooyen starts at halfback after Neal McNamara was ruled out, Lathaniel Tiatia and Lachy Macelroy will start on the wings, Josh Walker in the centres.

No Neal McNamara or Hayden Sargeant for the Dragons hurts and the Brethren don’t look to be in a generous mood.


Easts v Souths

Winless Easts have received a metaphorical thumb up the tiger pipe with big names returning to play fifth placed Souths.

Souths head into this important clash without a single change to their starting XV from round six which shows confidence in what's there.

Easts’ have been bolstered with Rebels FIFO and last year’s grand final Alec Evans medallist Rhys Van Nek up front, Jack Frampton returns from injury to the start at fullback and Ethan Richards in the centres.

The Tigers have upgraded since round six and that Van Nek magic could be the difference.

Controversial, but Easts.
