This was the first weekend of the NRL era to feature 4 Queensland teams, which had previously been the case in 1995-1996 (Brisbane/North Queensland/Gold Coast Chargers/South Queensland Crushers) when the old ARL was in the midst of the Super League war, and after 27 years of waiting, the Queenslanders got something that had never happened in the mid-90s…
ALL 4 QUEENSLAND TEAMS FINISHED AS WINNERS.
The Brisbane Broncos upset the Panthers 13-12 in Penrith
The North Queensland Cowboys defeat the Raiders 19-18
THE Redcliffe Dolphins defeat the Roosters 28-18 in their inaugural game
And the Gold Coast Titans travel to the Eighth Wonder of the World and upset Wests Tigers 22-10:
By comparison, the only games that Sydney-based teams won were the all-Sydney clashes between Manly-Canterbury and Souths-Cronulla.
SOUND THE ANTHEM – LIFE IS GREAT IN THE SUNSHINE STATE.
