    Gazza,,,, correct ,,, this was a one off 2 years ago where we were decimated in all grades with injuries ,,, is the only time its occured ,,,, our depth today in all grades is strong as indicated in our positions on the ladder in all grades. So these comments from fellow posters are so off the mark ... I have seen quite a few division one games over the past 2 seasons and only the top 3 sides may defeat most AFLQ Reserves sides ... there is a big gap in standards from Div one to AFLQ ...

    Looks like Sam was in and out of their seniors. Bit like when he played at palmy, but he definitely had a good year at the vultures and knows where they are.

    Interesting round ahead I’m tipping Morningside to get over a gallant Demons,

    the cats to get it done just v Maggies.

    Palmy too strong for Sandgate despite helping Suns neafl with Woolley and

    Vultures to pummel Wilson Grange who seem to have an injury crisis every year like the GC Suns ( how many times in a row do you get unlucky before you question what is happening?)

    An excellent round that will shape the 5

    Few more than that stuyd my mate played and he was nearly 55!
    Not a criticism, just a comment to this guy Gazza who overrates qafl 2s and shows a lack of respect for clubs who (like u 2 years ago) are doing it a bit tough numbers wise.
    Qafl sides are no different to most other clubs around Aust, will have good and bad years personnel wise. Broadbeach did 2 years ago and would have played with 16 blokes in a 2s game if not for a few old blokes putting hand up, at the ground mind u, not selected prior.

    Few people pretty well placed seem to differ stuyd with this opinion. Such as Thommo.

    UQ are 8th in Div 1 seniors. They would easily beat every QAFL reserves team in my opinion.

    Young hawks finding out what a grind QAFL footy is. Results are not indicative of the improvement in coaching and attitude around the club.

    Stay the course.

    Has this round shaped the 5?
    I hope so - terrific comeback by Surfers, I reckon we can get the 8 wins that will be required to make the 5 now. Cats for me though are shaping as the likely challengers to Palmy. A few quality players to come back in. Hopefully Labrador can knock a few off on the way home to make it interesting.

    The 5 is far from set, it will change weekly and possibly come down to the last round to whom finishes 3,4,5,6.

    Home wins are vital and pinching one away will be a huge bonus, Morningside’s loss to Sandgates will/could hurt them come seasons end

    Stubbs kicked 7, a dangerous forward come finals time can only bolster their chances but by how much......only time will tell.

    Top 5
    Palm Beach
    Broadbeach
    My Gravatt
    Morningside
    Western Magpies or Surfers

    Maggies are big boys and will struggle to run games out

    Agree with your top 3 Gaz
    But my reckoning is that the siders and us should win 4 more each which would keep us in the 4th position.
    Reckon the sandgate loss and losing to us both times will make it difficult.
    Maggies may struggle to win 2 more games imo.

    I reckon they will beat Mt Gravatt this week, easily account for Sandgate and Grange and probably beat Surfers again and 50/50 against Siders. Lose to Tigers down at Cooke Murphy. Not sure if that gets them in the finals though, but % would be helping them.

    Morningside pretty reliant on NEAFL players, so who knows with them.

    No doubt Thommo. In my view you are certainties to beat Sandgate and Grange and 50/50 against surfers Morningside and Labrador and a rough chance this weekend. Win 4/7 coming home and you play finals, but with good % you may even sneak in by winning another 3

    I’m tipping an upset this week, Morningside to beat Broadbeach at home , ground could be a tad sloppy/muddy on top from the rain which will slow Broadbeach down and suit Morningside.

    And Brisbane to draw with Carlton.

    Ablett ,, you have to be joking ,,,the rain is a godsend to the surface at Morningside which has been so dry since the newly laid turf was put in during the off season !!!

    The ground was fine but the result as you tipped. Morningside were just hungrier, worked harder and pressured us into error and deserved victory. Cats need to lick the wounds and get up next week for what I’d describe as a season defining game

    Correct,,,,, Panthers came out to play and win ,,,Broady came out thinking they had it won before the first bounce .
    And off the field Broady were outcoached !
