26 Jul Bruise brothers
Queanbeyan centre pairing are both former flankers bent on destruction. The bruise brothers, David Kerr and Jake Holland, have great delight in putting fancied rivals on their backsides.
Neither could be described as classic centres but both have added plenty of venom to the backline with the skills of five eighth Liam Moseley bringing the best out of them. Danny Matthews filled Moseley’s role against Wests and he too knew how to get the best from the duo.
The Whites have struggled throughout the season with injuries yet go into the last round with plenty of players putting their hands up.
Flanker Ryan Jones was impressive in filling in for injured captain Dan Penca, Keith Morgan looked fresh in seconds and the absence of Tonga Tangitoa did not throw the front row of Ben Gordon, Carl Elliott and Neori Nadruku.
Elliott has been a power this season and was rightly given the captain’s role last week.
If first grade were good then seconds were very good. There offloading was a delight to watch albeit against relatively weak opposition. With flanker Cameron Stanley lurking and Zac Tarrant back at his best the side was full of entertainment.
This Saturday thirds and fourths meet ADFA at ADFA while the premier division sides play Easts at Griffith.
This will make for a messy day as the club tries to juggle personnel across two sites.
