Breakers play GPS at home

Bond University Breakers will play at home on the Bond Rugby fields in round 10 of the Queensland Premier Rugby Competition, against GPS this Saturday June 8.  The weekend games will start an hour earlier due to the Queensland Reds match against the British and Irish Lions this Saturday night in Brisbane.   All club teams have now played each other once and we will move into the second half of the 2013 season this weekend.  GPS are a strong team, placed second on the ladder, but the Breakers always put on a good show in front of a supportive crowd and have shown improvement throughout the season.  After the game, players, staff and supporters from both teams are all invited to Don's Tavern – the University’s on-campus licensed venue, for the traditional after match function.  The Bond University Breakers are proud to announce the selection of Tereta-Junior Siakisin (TJ) in the Combined Country team and Rory Arnold as a shadow to face the British and Irish Lions in Newcastle on June 11.  Bond University Breakers Manager, Tim Rowlands said not only is Siakisin a good rugby player, he is a good clubman.  “TJ’s selection in front of more fancied contracted players from both Brisbane and Sydney is not only a great result for him, but it also vindicates the pathway through the Breakers Program, is working,” Rowlands said. Bond University Breakers Coach, Rob Nowlan praised his young centre. “TJ is a powerful midfield runner who has just progressed up from colts. Still maturing as a footballer in the mould of Ben Tapuai, but with a couple of years under Setu Naseri's (Breakers assistant coach) guidance in the senior teams or representative teams, he will be a serious force to be reckoned with,” Nowlan said.  Australian Rugby Union head of High Performance, Ben Whittaker has asked Rory Arnold to join the Country Camp, as part of the squad as a shadow selection. Arnold will gain from the experience and if he is not called up, he will be flying back this Saturday morning to play that afternoon for the Breakers.  After this week’s match, the Breakers will have an away game followed by a bye before they are back at Bond University for the Heritage Round on Saturday June 29 against Sunnybank. The Premier Colts play at 11am, 1st grade at 12:30pm and the Premier team kicks off at 2pm.
