Redbacks play well
THE Redbacks showed that with just an ounce of luck and the bounce of the ball they really can match it with the best in the competition.
Losing quality wingman Coen Slatter with a dislocation and a break to the thumb was just one thing that went wrong.
The scoreboard showed USQ winning by 16 points; it doesn’t show that there were only four points in the game with only six minutes left on the clock, it doesn’t show the umpiring decisions that went against the Reddies but could well have gone for them.
USQ 10.12 (72) defeated Redbacks 8.8 (56). The 22 guys who booted up for the game can hold their heads high. Their season is not over and if they play with the courage and determination against ladder leaders Toowoomba on Saturday at Slade Park they will still be playing finals football.
Kris Millard’s game can only be described as outstanding. His strong marking in defence, his reading of the play and long driving kicks into the Reddies forward line were superb.
Alex Cutmore and Matt Sinkins also played well for a courageous Redbacks side.
