All four Bond University Rugby teams in this year’s Brisbane premier competition finals will be playing for a grand finals berth on the weekend of August 28-29.

The Queensland Rugby Union today announced that the competition’s finals series would be reduced to two weekends.

Elimination finals will be on August 28–29 (Team 1 v Team 4; Team 2 v Team 3).

The winners of those two games will meet in the grand finals on September 4-5.

For the Bond teams in the finals the draw for the opening weekend of finals will be:

Saturday August 28:

10am: Bond Colts 2 v Brothers (at Norths)

12pm: Bond Colts 1 v Easts (at GPS)

5pm: Bond Premier Women v GPS (at GPS)

Sunday August 29:

1.30pm: Bond Second Grade v Souths (at GPS)

For teams winning through to the grand finals:

Colts 2 and Second Grade will play their grand final at Sunnybank on Saturday, September 4.

Women’s Premier Grade and Colts 1 will play their grand final at Suncorp Stadium on Sunday, September 5.

Bond University Director of Rugby, Luca Liussi, said players were relieved to have some certainty around the finals.

“We have experienced an exceptional season to date, having a record four teams in the finals,” he said.

“Each of those teams has the ability to win the ultimate crown, so now we can focus on the road through the finals.

“There are some Covid restrictions remaining around training with team management liaising with players in relation to that.

“Despite that, there is a real buzz through the club. Players, coaches and support staff have worked extremely hard this season to be in premiership contention.

“The focus now for those people is to regain the momentum. The rest of the club are behind you.”
