Teammates play out 14-all draw in intra-squad trial


With the squad split down the middle, the St.George Queensland Reds have played out a 14-all draw in an intra-squad opposed session at Ballymore Stadium on Friday night. 

The fixture was the side’s first pre-season hit out of 2018 and took place following the annual St.George Twilight Fan Day. 

Reds head coach Brad Thorn said he was pleased with what he saw, as his side edges closer to the Vodafone Super Rugby season. 

“I was really pleased with tonight. You saw two sides compete really hard. They’re all good mates but they were cracking on in there. It’s a start. We can have a look at that, learn from it and progress.”

Queensland Red’s tries were scored by Samu Kerevi and Hamish Stewart, with conversions to James Tuttle and Isaac Lucas. Queensland White’s tries were scored by Moses Sorovi and Tai Ford, with conversions by Nic Jooste and Jake Strachan. 

The Reds’ next pre-season fixture is the second edition of the Brisbane Global Rugby Tens, taking place at Suncorp Stadium next Friday and Saturday. They will then host Fiji Warriors at Ballymore Stadium on Thursday 15 February. 

The Reds’ Super Rugby season gets underway with an away match on Friday 23 February against the Melbourne Rebels. Their first home game is against the Brumbies on Friday 2 March, at Suncorp Stadium.
