This week in Premier Rugby certainly didn’t disappoint!
First and foremost, Wests had a stunning 36-20 win over 2012 Premiers Uni. This is perhaps a turning point for Wests and shows that they are more than capable of a good upset.
2012 Grand Finalists Sunnybank went down 26-19 to Easts, who are now in 3rd place on the Ladder.
Norths were defeated 18-13 by a strong GPS side and they remain winless this season.
After trailing for a good part of the first half, Brothers managed a 42-15 win over Souths at Chipsy Wood Oval. The Brethren are the clear leaders of the competition with 25 points.
The Sunshine and Gold Coast had a bye but they will play Brothers and Easts respectively next week.
With some close games and upsets this round, we look forward to next week where anything can happen. If you haven’t already, go and check out your local rugby club on a Saturday. It’s a perfect, relaxed way to spend a Saturday. And if you do go along and happen to have a Twitter account, why not hashtag your experience? If you hashtag “3rd tier” you will be helping to promote the 3rd Tier notion in Australia. Let’s keep on building club rugby!
